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.

Lions Storm Back to Feast on Thanksgi...

A 12-year old set the stage. This young phenom of a singer came out and reverberated the best national anthem I’ve ever heard, crushing the crescendo’s each step of the way. As his voice raised for “Rockets red glare,” my body shook with emotion. I was stunned and impressed. He finished the anthem STRONG, making me cry [...]

Fuck the Patriots

“ We took a knee, so I cut the nose. They went for a touchdown at two minutes — they could have taken three knees and the game could have been over. I mean, it’s football. You want us to keep playing football? Let’s play football. ”- Lions center Dominic Raiola, explaining his late cut block on Patriots defensive lineman Zac [...]

Good Luck Lions

It’s going to be cold. As we saw in Michigan & Michigan State’s games, sometimes it’s hard for the receivers to hold onto the ball. Oldschool and I noticed it right away, and sure enough, the lone interception for the Wolverines was on a loose ball in the air after the receiver couldn’t catch it. POUND THE RUN AND [...]


At the Coliseum, Oakland beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-20 on a last-minute drive. Rookie QB Derek Carr led his Raiders 80 yards in seven minutes, completing a fourth down and three other third downs along the way. Carr found James Jones in the end zone with under two minutes remaining for the go-ahead touchdown. With one last chance, the Chi [...]

Waited right until he got that new $50 million dollar extension… then told itself, “Snap.” C’mon, Cardinals: it’s Carson Palmer.

C’mon, NFL – let a G play.

So proud.

Lions Do It Again!

The comeback kids make it three games in a row! Matthew Stafford connected with Theo Riddick in the back of the end zone with under one minute left for a 20-16 Lions lead. Miami took advantage of two Detroit miscues: their lone touchdown came via a blocked punt, and the Lions threw an interception after having just picked one themselves. Next [...]

Lions Strategy Vs. Dolphins

First of all, congratulations to the Lions for displaying Detroit so proudly in front of the world last Sunday. Let’s ride that high into our home crowd for sixty minutes Sunday. With Calvin Johnson back, the Lions will be tempted to pass it tomorrow. However, check out these stats for the two teams that beat the Dolphins solidly this s [...]


My schedule was yanking and twisting over the last several days to seemingly set me up, magically, for the 9:30 AM ET wake up call that was the scheduled start time for the Lions in London. I woke up at 5:30, had a few Heinekens, and settled in. It was a beautiful day in Michigan, not a cloud in the sky, really. The weather was decent in Engl [...]
