Welcome, Wizards

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.

Fellow Lions Bid Farewell

When I signed with the Detroit Lions I met a young man by the name of Calvin Johnson Jr…a humble superstar who spoke with his actions not his words. After watching him during our first practice together I knew I was going to be witness to something very special. In the 4 years I was […]

Statement from Calvin Johnson

Statement from Calvin Johnson

“And finally, to the fans of Detroit and Michigan. I so appreciated your passionate support over the years and truly enjoyed playing for you. I loved playing in Detroit and will forever be a Lion. My biggest regret is that I wasn’t able to help give our fans a championship. But I do believe the […]

Adios, GOAT

So, Indianapolis… how’s my ass taste? That’s right, I’m riding off… on top. Beat pretty boy Tom Brady twice (ney – 3 times) to reach 3 of my 4 Super Bowls… crowning myself in the finale. Look, Manning won’t ever talk that much shit, so I will for him… My childhood idol not for some […]

Just Enjoy the Parade

I was getting really sick of people wasting our time after Peyton finally just won his Super Bowl… people will do anything to try and bring a G down – they pop out of the woodwork when you win, no where to be seen before! This idiotic Denver Post writer went way to far, so […]

Dear Megatron,

I think we still have some unfinished business. Take your time to let your body heal and make a clear-headed conscious choice. I respect how brutal a game it is, but you and Matthew Stafford are the dream team. I’d be hard pressed not to at least give it one more shot. Martha Ford is […]

Peyton and the Denver Broncos Ride High

With stellar defense from start to finish (and a sheriff under center), the underdog Denver Broncos completed the dream season with a 24-10 victory on Super Bowl Sunday. Lady Gaga clearly rattled Carolina with her sexiness, broadcasting one helluva national anthem to boot. They elected, despite being a high-scoring, 1st half team, to kickoff after […]

Back to the Super Bowl

The Denver Broncos resiliently cashed in their check to Super Bowl 50 by beating the cheating, evil New England Patriots 20-18 in the AFC Championship. We came out crushing their weak-ass. The defense wasn’t letting them put any drives together, and Peyton Manning took the offense down on their opening possession for the TD. He […]

Denver Broncos Advance to AFC Championship

What a gritty, grind-it-out game. Reminiscent of Tony Dungy during Peyton Manning’s time with Indy, Denver utilized the field goal to conquer their opponent in a defensive war. Despite their offense being banged up, Pittsburgh’s notorious D was difficult to overcome. Fortunately, the Broncos were aided by excellent field position all game and especially early […]

Lions Settling Like Tigers

The new GM has elected to keep Jim Caldwell. So, like the Detroit Tigers, they must BE INSANE. Because they are repeating the same action over and over again, yet expecting different results. Gheesh. Detroit deserves better. Here are some good quotes from The Detroit Free Press: Was it the generally poor game management? Was it […]

Ride Off into the Sunset, Lions

THIS IS ALL ABOUT MEGATRON. ABOUT STAFFORD. ABOUT THE PLAYERS WHO ROSE FROM THE ASHES OF A BURNT DOWN SEASON TO WIN SIX OF EIGHT, CAPTURING OUR HEARTS AGAIN. I will really miss these Lions. I know we’ll be back next year, but if someone slightly less moronic coached the season, we’d be getting ready for the […]

Peyton Manning Returns

All that was missing was the invisible horse Manning strode in on. With five minutes (or something to that effect) remaining in the third quarter, after five turnovers from Brocky baby, the GOAT re-emerged to take his place in the pantheon of greatness. Willis Reed. Michael Jordan. Not Lance Armstrong. Manning moves into a story […]

A Legend Is Born

The full version of this clip can be seen here: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-films-sound-efx/09000d5d8147c551/Sound-FX-Matthew-Stafford-mic-d-up Detroit trailed 24-3 against Cleveland in Matthew Stafford’s rookie season. Not only does he bring them back, he injures his throwing shoulder on the second-to-last play, earning them a first and goal, then re-enters the game for the final throw. This still brings tears to […]

Lions Ride High

At halftime, the Lions learned how to tackle, turning a 20-17 lead into a 32-17 final. San Francisco’s backup took them down on the opening drive for a touchdown, largely due to insanely sloppy tackling. Luckily, we returned the ensuing kick to the 40, and at least responded with a field goal. The next possession […]
