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.

Red Wings Rally at Home as Clock Expi...

It was the same old song as last night – Toronto stayed on their dirty horse. They committed several first period penalties and prodded our players from the get go, setting the tone for the game. It was to no avail, just like in their arena. The Red Wings couldn’t score, but neither could the Maple Leafs. Jimmy Howard sat out with [...]

Red Wings Roll

Toronto came out dirty. They split open “The Mule’s” face just beside his eye almost immediately after the opening puck dropped. Johan (Mule) Franzen didn’t waste any time retaliating on the scoreboard. With the Red Wings earning a power play on a different high stick, the Maple Leafs mojo started to wane. Shortly afte [...]

Red Wings Take Opener 2-1

The cheap, no good, dirty rotten Boston Bruins returned to Joe Louis Arena for our season opener tonight. Henrik Zetterberg also celebrated his 34th birthday. The Red Wings featured all their sensational Griffins from last season – Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Jurco, among others. We all know the Bruins can’t skate or play r [...]

Tremendous Season, Red Wings

Sorry those bastards couldn’t skate with you and resorted to cheap shots. With our young guns, as usual, we ain’t goin’ no where.

Sick of the Boston Beatdowns? Me, Too

It’s not from a lack of Red Wing skill. This is becoming outrageous. We’re being bullied out of the playoffs. Detroit won game one 1-0 and has dealt with cheap shots ever since. I’m sick of 6’10” Charo thugging his way through our more talented players. If they want to stick us in the balls, bang us illegally, an [...]

Red Wings Take Game One

Jimmy Howard and the Detroit Red Wings shutout the Boston Bruins to win game one. Howard stopped everything the Bruins threw at him. He made some amazing saves, or they’d have definitely scored. Neither team could break the silence for two periods. However, Pavel Datsyuk passed it to himself through his legs, then took a shot with three [...]

Red Wings Clinch Playoffs

It’s the longest active streak in the four major sports: 23 years in a row Detroit has made the NHL playoffs. Detroit outplayed the Penguins in Pittsburgh, but they fell 4-3 in a shootout. We led 1-0, then they got a cheap penalty and scored. We led 2-1, but they got a power play (cheap?) and scored. Down 3-2, Detroit rallied in the wan [...]

Mike Babcock Becomes Red Wings All-Ti...

The Wings bested Buffalo on the road 4-2. We stayed knotted at zeroes for the first period, then the Sabres scored first to start the second period. Detroit responded with Brendan Smith’s 5th goal of the season to tie it. Buffalo found themselves up 5 on 3 shortly after the tie, but the Red Wings killed the penalties successfully. Jimmy [...]

Red Wings Win 4th in a Row

The Red Wings shot out to a 3-0 lead in the 1st period and did not look back. The last-place Sabres got beat 3-2, largely due to the Buffalo defense making some lucky stops.

Red Wings Down Boston!

After a one to one tie from two periods of play, the Boston Bruins scored their second goal at the beginning of the 3rd period. However, the resilient Red Wings answered with two more of their own to win in Detroit. In a scrum in front of the net, dirty Boston knocked Tommy Tatar’s helmet off. Tatar was able to kick the puck over to Tom [...]

Red Wings!

Another clutch win for the best franchise in the NHL. Can’t stop Nyquist.
