Welcome, Gs

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.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.




Not Cool, Lions

Not Cool, Lions

Before the Detroit Lions traded Golden Tate III, the heart and soul of our receiving core, the man who’d go over the middle, turn nothing into something, and score in the clutch – we were 3-4 and in position to win our division. Since, we have gone 1-4, including three losses to Minnesota & Chicago. […]

Running Down a Dream

Well, the state of Michigan denied me my medical disabilty. I’m sure I’ll lawyer-up and win, but more work awaits a man who can barely get through winter right now without daily, severe pain. I fell in love (again 😉 ); and I thought I would ring in 2018 with enough money to be able […]

All-Time Victory

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions would not be bullied into submission by their former division rival the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Instead, they forced five turnovers, Stafford with taped fingers barely threw an incompletion, and Matt Prater drained the game-winning field goal in Florida’s face with almost no time left. Florida can suck our Michigan […]

Take a Knee, Potus

Take a Knee, Potus

For the most public time since his election, Donald J. Trump is, in his crude terms, most definitely losing. Ole racist rhetoric went down south and labeled black NFL players for taking a knee and protesting race relations in their country. His outrageous request to “fire” anyone demonstrating blew up in his face, with demonstrations […]

How a Real Team Does It

Well, happy early 30th birthday to snarf, because that’s the game I’ve been waiting my entire life for the Detroit Lions to play. They got an early lead, played enough defense to hold onto it, capitalized on the other team’s mistakes, and ran the ball home to a 24-10 victory. I knew I’d seen that […]

Ruining the Super Bowl

I hope Atlanta, the NFL, and everyone who watched understands what we just did. Instead of remembering a beatdown of NE, Lady Gaga’s electric halftime performance (the best of all-time with a nod to Prince), and all the festivities, we get to watch a team of Trump supporters parade around for an entire year. The […]

Evil Strikes Back

This is what you get, America: you fuck up everything good. You sit back on your fat fucking ass and you gargle horse shit food and advertising down until you’re unable to distinguish team from team. This is tragically fitting. We got LUCKY in 2016: Peyton & Denver; LeBron > the Warriors; the Cubs comeback. […]

Devastation Island

No big deal… just fuck our Detroit/Michigan lives! Incredible job, referees! Kudos for organizing your strategic effort to cheat so precisely. 4th & goal? Perfect timing! Deep ball – why not?! Look, Cheate Carrol and fellow Cheathawks: I have 0 respect for you. Down 10-6 entering the final quarter, the NFL was too afraid we’d […]

#6 Seed? Fair Enough

Nope, it’s not what we wanted. Losing 31-24 in front of our home fans for the second time this year to Green Bay for the division title definitely blew balls. BUT – we have punched our ticket to the playoffs, and no one can take that from us. As coach Jim Caldwell stated, 12 teams […]

Unprepared for the Big Time

This is a difficult article to write because I hate to blame the fans: but you disgust me, Detroit. You abandoned your city, and you are leaving your team to die. You don’t care, it’s cool. I know you don’t. Besides the Red Wings, who were chock full of Hall of Famers, I’ve watched ONE […]

Not Going to Cut It, Detroit

I think we can all hear David Bowie saying, “Under Pressure,” right about now. While the Lions eliminated fellow division foe Minnesota from playoff contention with their loss today, the dreaded division rival Green Bay Packers survived a lucky win in Chicago to creep within one game of us. There are two left. And the […]

Lions Escape with Poor Play

Much like Michigan, maybe it’s worth taking an early look in the mirror instead of rolling through the season with mistakes uncorrected. In my humble opinion, Matthew Stafford is doing a better job calling plays for the Detroit Lions than the coaches are. We managed to win at home against a mildly talented Jacksonville Jaguars […]
