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.

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 [...]

Lions Fans All Over the World

“He’s a great guy. He is a good athlete, and he has a good personality,” Leuenberger, Switzerland, said. “He is not over the top like other players, who think they are invincible. He’s doing a great job, and if there’s someone who can lead the Lions to the Super Bowl, maybe he is the guy. “Maybe this [...]

Broncos 35, Chargers 21

What a game. Fresh from my postgame four hour nap – let’s do this. The two division leaders of the AFC West squared off on Thursday Night Football. Denver was just off their Sunday Night-Manning Record game. Peyton & the Broncos knocked on the door early, but they couldn’t quite finish their first two drives. On their th [...]

Sign of the Apocalypse

According to TheWashingtonPost, this woman found a crow at the Redskins’ game and held onto it for 45 minutes. Nice, Redskins fans.

Peyton Manning Sets NFL Career Touchd...

And the Denver Broncos thrashed the San Francisco 49ers 42-17 on Sunday Night Football. Manning didn’t disappoint the national television audience, marching Denver down the field in their opening drive and finding his receiver to come within one touchdown of the all-time record. He promptly tied it on his next possession, finding Wes We [...]

Detroit Lions Storm Back on Saints

Oldschool had to take the reigns for this game – a little too early for snarf. Here’s what I learned in hindsight: The Lions trailed 17-3 without Calvin Johnson, and Golden Tate stepped up huge. It was a game of high penalties and too much passing. Olds said they baited us into the shootout. Luckily, Joquie “Believe” B [...]


Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen called for the NFL to suspend Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict for intentionally trying to injure him and quarterback Cam Newton following touchdowns in Sunday’s 37-37 tie. Video shows Burfict twisting and “cranking” the ankles of both players after they scored. “Puni [...]

Lions Defense Dominates in Minnesota

Without Reggie Bush or Calvin Johnson, the Detroit Lions beat the Vikings in Minnesota 17-3. There is much to celebrate, for the defense sacked Teddy Bridgewater eight times (most since ’97), picked him off three times, and didn’t allow a single touchdown. However, the Lions put way too much pressure on themselves down the stretch [...]

Lions Get Their K

Stay off that liquor and it’ll all be good, pro-bowler! This could be the final piece to the puzzle – we have the top-ranked defense but were 4/12 on FG’s. We got the coach and the QB… just keep everyone healthy for the playoffs.

Lions = Matt Prater

Time for the Lions to sign Matt Prater – Pride Of Detroit. A + B = C


Best Day Ever.

Valiant Peyton Comeback

Manning scored two fourth quarter touchdowns, including one with under twenty seconds left to force overtime in Seattle. His drive took forty seconds without any timeouts left. The Super Bowl rematch was much more respectable, even without the neutral field. Denver’s much improved defense only allowed three points in the second half. Un [...]
