Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

About Us

The Sporting Snarf is a website dedicated to the enjoyable, humorous, and nuanced aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Silver Surfer Needed Again

Adam Silver swooped in to ban Donald Sterling (effectively as a distraction during the 2014 playoffs), but now, he’s back in the spotlight. Endlessly. This is exhausting, Adam – it’s BULL SHIT.

Which Is Better for LeBron James: Cav...

My thoughts exactly: So, in overall, things were done exactly as they should have in Miami.

Moment of the Draft

Isaiah Austin, a seven footer from Baylor, found out when he went in for his draft physical that he has Marfan syndome, a heart disorder. It means he cannot play in the NBA.

Time to man up, Miami. You’re our only hope…
