Welcome, Gs

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 (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Griffins Tie Up Conference Finals

An electric atmosphere in Grand Rapids, Michigan was a fitting environment for an overtime thriller. The Griffins came through facing a potential three games to one hole if Utica scored first in OT. Andreas Athanasion put away the final goal for the home crowd five minutes into the extra period. It was 1-0 us early […]

Griffins Storm Back

Down two games to zero in a best of five, Grand Rapids rallied for three straight wins to move on. We got Marchenko back on defense from the Red Wings, plus Teemu Pulkkinen, the leading goal scorer in the AHL playoffs (six). He led the league in goals during the regular season despite splitting time in […]

Nothing You Can Do About That

I can’t believe I watched the referees ruin another playoff game. As Darren Oliver stated after one period of play, “the reffing was atrocious.” Despite outplaying Tampa Bay with many more shots on goal, it stayed 0-0 for two periods. Try sustaining momentum with one dirty team allowed to poke and prod and then the […]


AFTER ALL THE HORSE SHIT the Red Wings have took against their goalie, among all the dirtiness Tampa Bay produced, WE GET THE SUSPENSION? That was a perfectly clean hit by Niklas Kronwall. This is a travesty, especially with the way they’ve been acting, undercutting Petr Mrazek’s legs. It was a good hit,” Babcock said. […]

Tale of Two Halves

It’s too bad Detroit dug themselves an early hole, otherwise we’d be celebrating in the Motor City. For now, we’ll wait ’til game seven. We trailed 3-0 after 30 minutes of play, then essentially worked a 2-0 score in our favor the rest of the way. Tampa changed nothing, meaning they stayed dirty once again. […]

Red Wings Claim Game Three

Justin Abdelkader returned from injury just in the nick of time, helping Detroit fight off some dirty play. You wouldn’t guess Stevie Y’s team would be so gay. But, they are. At one point in the third period, they took Petr Mrazek out from under his skates with a slash, and Abdelkader had seen enough. […]

Fuckin’ Red Wings

Petr Mrazek earned the start at goalie in game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Grand Rapids Griffin saved 44 shots – a new Red Wings record in a debut. Some of them were impractical, but he still made them. Seven penalties against us put Detroit at a constant disadvantage. Nonetheless, we fought through […]
