Welcome!

TheSportingSnarf  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 ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

What a Clipper Way to Win It

WE FUCKING DID IT!! WELCOME TO THE 2021 CONFERENCE FINALS, LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS – FOR THE FIRST FUCKING TIME EVER!!! Without all-star Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers banded together to take game five in Utah vs. the top seeded Jazz and go back to LA with a 3-2 series lead. Where they promptly trailed 75-50 at […]

One More Shot

Can’t really believe I’m writing this. Not because we massively choked and lost the last two games with a chance to close out the Semis, but because WE ARE HERE. It took one season with Kawhi to make us a contender, and now, it’s time to beat the Nuggets one more time. Look, we might […]

Mourning the Loss of a Legend

Mourning the Loss of a Legend

When we all found out that Kobe Bryant had passed, for kids my age in the late 90’s, for sports fans all over the world, and even for people who didn’t necessarily like Kobe, the news was extremely shocking and saddening. The man was young, but his daughter, who played the game eerily similar to […]

Blueprint is There: BEAT THE WARRIORS

The Clippers exposed a team that surmised to turmoil nearly all season long, and now Houston has the defending champs in the same boat LA did: series tied, 2-2. The defense the Rockets displayed during game 3, especially from midway in the 1st quarter to halftime, is exactly how you beat GS. Don’t allow any […]

Rested Pistons Take Down Celtics

Rested Pistons Take Down Celtics

The last time we checked on the Detroit Pistons, they were red-hot, having won five in a row and nine of their last 11. Coming off back-to-back wins against the Bulls and Warriors, Detroit was forced to play a third game in four nights against the Oklahoma City Thunder; we lost by 27. For the […]

Glory = Defense

Glory = Defense

Defense might have been fazed out in basketball by rule changes, but it’s still the #1 factor determining outcomes in the NBA and NCAA. Michigan is off to a strong start because they’ve locked down top teams like Villanova & North Carolina, both of whom usually score a lot. And they beat Purdue handily in […]

Once in a Blake-time

You might never see anything like that again, Detroit. A superstar in the prime of his career, debuting in an arena built this season to move us back downtown, going for 20, 10, & 5 in a two-point climactic win. It truly doesn’t get much more spectacular in the regular season. Granted, the Pistons must […]

Fuck the Celtics

How dare anyone celebrate this city of Celtics? They traded the heart and soul of their Eastern Conference Finals team, Isaiah Thomas, for a comparable player of the same position KNOWING Thomas gave them everything he had. First of all, to Kyrie Irving: boy are you a pussy! Did you forget what life was like before the […]

Good Luck Tonight, LAC

I’m so sick & tired of settling. Close Elite 8 loss, runner up in so many big games – my poor Clippers, even without Blake Griffin, must make sure they don’t do the same in Utah tonight. The Jazz think they’ll close us out – don’t let it happen. Play rough defense for 4 quarters: […]

Sadly, Prediction Holds True

Granted, that first half of the NBA All-Star game was pretty fun. The East led 52-49 after one quarter, the only time in the history of basketball over 100 points have been scored in a frame. But, by the beginning of the second half, the game had gave way to the Russell Westbrick shitshow for […]

THE DUNK CONTEST IS BACK

It’s Kenny “The Jet’s” favorite line each and every year, because quite frankly, there is nothing like it in sports. My boy Little Big Dog aka Glenn Robinson III straight out of Ann Arbor, he who helped us reach the National Championship stole the show with a backwards over his mascot, cheerleader, and teammate dunk […]

Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road

Sorry, Warriors fans, but you were wrong: your Kevin Durant-Fantasy Basketball team still sucks, getting blown out by 30 points at home in the NBA season opener. Because, you have never learned how to play defense. You sacrificed crucial pieces of your team: Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, Leandro Barbosa, Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli, all of […]

Taking A Stand

LeBron James’ actions in declaring his support during the presidential race are exactly the type of actions that I’m talking about when I mean going above and beyond to do your part. Sure, fresh off cementing his legacy with a return to Cleveland after winning two titles in Miami, allowing his hometown city that never […]
