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 Race to Four Goals, Finish Wild in Shootout

Oldschool and I turned her on up 2-1 after one period of play. Minnesota represents a team from our past, a former Western Conference foe. A Grand Rapids Griffin scored his first career goal to put us on the board. Teemu Pulkkinen looks like Happy Gilmore with his wicked slapshot. Unfortunately, his youth put him in […]

Henrik Hat Tricks Buffalo

If you had seen last night’s game, Detroit took a 3-0 lead in the first period, forcing a goalie change from the Predators. Tonight, it was deja vu – our opponent, the Sabres, scored three goals on their first seven shots to force Petr “Griffin” out. To Mrazek’s credit, he’s evolving faster than he was […]

Red Wings Score 5 Goals in Return Home

After not seeing our Red Wings all season, Detroit was in for a treat on Saturday night. Before you could see the puck drop, we took a 1-0 advantage. Then, another goal. Finally, Tomas Tatar netted a 3-0 lead in the first period! Our opponent was the dreaded Predators. They can be seen taking Nikolas […]

Pavel Datsyuk Scores Game-Winner in OT!

The game stayed scoreless for the first half of action thanks to Petr Mrazek stopping several tough shots, including one point blank rebound in the second. We were on the doorstep at the end of the period ourselves, just barely missing a few tries. Then, unexpectedly, St. Louis’ coach called timeout with about two minutes […]

Red Wings 3, Sabres 1

Detroit struck first on a short-handed goal courtesy of Darren Helm (via way of Quincey). We never relinquished the lead behind Petr “Griffin” Mrazek, who stopped 25 of 26 shots that came his way. Buffalo made it 2-1 Red Wings, but Detroit scored another goal in the second period to re-up her to a two […]

Red Wings Take Two Straight on Road

In the midst of a six-game road trip, Detroit avenged their opening loss to the Canucks with back-to-back wins in Edmonton and Calgary. Justin Abdelkader has been leading the charge with two goals and three assists in these two victories. The Oilers had tied it at two in the third period until they were assessed […]

Clippers & Red Wings Rock in New Year’s

Los Angeles took down the Knicks by about twenty points to end 2014. Following suit, Detroit beat the Devils 3-1 at Joe Louis Arena later the same night. The Red Wings were tied at one goal for most the game, then a gorgeous deflection took the lead. Darren Helm finished it off on a charging […]

Overtime in Ottawa

The Red Wings made it back-to-back wins Saturday, taking down the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in overtime. Jimmy Howard stopped 31 shots in his return to the net. Gustav Nyquist drained the game-winning shot with under a minute left. Detroit beat Buffalo 6-3 before the Christmas break. Petr “Griffin” had been filling in admirable for Howard, […]

Red Wings Tie for First with Shootout

Even though no one seems to attack right for our Red Wings in the shootout, it’s such an arbitrary way to end an otherwise dominating effort by Detroit. It’s just too pussy, why else don’t they do it in the playoffs? Riley Sheahan scored his seventh goal of the season to put us on the […]

Red Wings Skate Asses Off, Fall in Shootout

Detroit took 42 shots on the night; Toronto, 19. Only one went in for each team after 65 minutes of hockey. With no due respect to the Maple Leafs, they clutched and grabbed their way through regulation, uglying up the fine game of hockey our Red Wings skate so well at. Their lone goal came […]

Red Wings 3, Hurricanes 1

Tomas Tatar scored two goals for Detroit in Carolina behind Petr Mrazek in goal. Pavel Datsyuk added a goal of his own while assisting both to Tatar.

Red Wings…

The boys of Hockeytown made it two in a row after their 5-2 win Thursday. Detroit trailed 2-0 before rallying with three unanswered goals to beat the New York Rangers. Jimmy Howard hung tough after two first period goals. The Red Wings turned it up in the second, tying it before the third started. One […]
