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 check a score, read a game-story, or 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.

Roddy White Mans Up

Messing around with a guy on Twitter, White said, @DHoyt77 if mercer beat duke I will give you season tickets 50 yard line first row — Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 18, 2014 Well, the rest is history. At first, White didn’t think he should have to pay up. He offered tickets to one game against the Bears instead, since that [...]

NFL Free Agency Frenzy

The Detroit Lions have added WR Golden Tate from the Seattle Seahawks for five years. *UPDATE* Oakland added former Wolverine linebacker Lamar Woodley & Super Bowl Champion Justin Tuck. Furthermore, Denver signed Dallas-cut DeMarcus Ware for three years. Yessir.

Here We Go, Broncos!

+ Aqib Talib The defending AFC Champs are saddling up with Patriots cornerback Talib. With a healthy Von Miller and Chris Harris Jr., look out.

AFC CHAMPIONS Now that the season is over, I would like to properly put it in perspective. Peyton Manning won another MVP by setting the single season NFL records in passing yardage and touchdowns. The Broncos scored more points than any other team in the history of the NFL. Denver beat San Diego at home to advance to the AFC Championship vs. [...]

Peyton Manning “Classiest Perso...

“When I was limping up to my press conference and trying to make it up the stairs, somebody taps me on the shoulder and extends their hand and asks if I’m all right,” Richard Sherman said during the interview. “My eyes try to make it up to see who it is, and it’s Peyton … fully dressed in a suit and obvious [...]

Sad Ending to Storybook Season

Shame we went out like that. I’m happy we made it to the Super Bowl, set all the records, and beat the Patriots.

Peyton Manning Leads Denver Broncos P...

The stage was set. New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts Denver Broncos. One more time. If Denver was Super Bowl-worthy, this was the last test. Three teams beat them this season: San Diego (redeemed), Indianapolis, and New England. New England beat Indy last week, so this was a way of coming full circle. To the game. Peyton Manning thr [...]

Denver Broncos Advance to AFC Champio...

Peyton finished off the San Diego Chargers with some clock killing, otherwise it was getting close, folks. 24-17 was the final score from Denver, Colorado. The Broncos sacked Phil Rivers twice on the opening drive and forced the punt. Peyton promptly went down in seven minutes for the 7-0 score. Demaryius Thomas made a nice catch for the touc [...]

Jim Schwartz Fucking Up

We handed New York the game and two shitty teams our division all in one easily avoidable pick six. Five minutes to go. Keep running the ball. POUND THE RUN. The Giants had not scored in the second half and took a safety that swung the momentum to Detroit. The Lions built a 20-13 lead that was gone in an instant that seemed too bad to be true [...]

Manning Sets NFL Record 51st TD

Denver 37, Houston 13 With 400 yards and 4 TDs, Peyton Manning eclipsed the NFL-record 50 TDs in a season with his 51st on the 2013 season. He threw 49 back in 2004. One of the classiest in the game.

Heartbreaking Monday Nighter in Motow...

We should have beaten the defending Super Bowl Champions on Monday Night Football. The defense held all night. Could Megatron have Blocked the Final Kick? The Lions marched down the field on their opening and closing drives for touchdowns. The final score took the lead 16-15 with less than three minutes left. Stupid kicker. In Detroit, our fa [...]

John Fox Has Swag?

In his return to coaching after having an aortic valve replacement, Broncos coach John Fox screamed, “Victory!” after Denver’s win in Tennessee. Furthermore, he checked into hospital as “Johnny Drama.” “I felt great, I really did,” Fox said after the game. “It feels great to be back. I had a goo [...]
