Welcome!

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.

The Ballad of Ann & Snarf

The Ballad of Ann & Snarf

There were once two friends, who even though they lived in the same state, only knew each other thanks to an online chat. Snarf’s friend Ann could tell that he was in desperate need of a vacation, and after knowing each other two years, she swooped into town to pick him up. For a week, […]

Snarfin’ All Over the Wooorld

Snarfin’ All Over the Wooorld

What an utter and complete joy to witness the 2018 World Cup. For the first time in my life I knew friends living in the various participating countries (Denmark! Belgium! Australia!) and saw firsthand just how into it everyone outside of America is. The rarity of the event combined with a solid tournament set-up really […]

Good Luck, Murray

Often, tennis is overlooked on this site, because, let’s face it: outside of Andy Murray & the Williams sisters, no one has any personality. Both Serena and Andy keep making recent finals and falling just short. I had a feeling this could be their tournament going in, and now with Federer and Jokester eliminated and […]

Wild Night in the UFC

My dad (oldschool) and I caught the two championship fights Saturday night, and they did not disappoint. The first was my favorite. Miesha Tate finished off Amy Schumer’s lookalike Holly Holm in the climactic final minutes. The first round, they just barely touched each other. I guess all Holm does is use her giant legs […]

We Will Miss You, Ronda Rousey

We Will Miss You, Ronda Rousey

But unfort, like your gay-ass sport, your career will be ending very shortly. That’s it. YOU GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT BY AMY SCHUMER! I once was sucked into this sport, but it’s not so – it’s too fast and violent unlike boxing to last. While seeing Holly & Ronda’s rematch will be really cool, […]

The Collapse of Serena

Truly a tragedy. Our American woman deserved the Grand Slam, holding them all in the same year, but instead she’ll settle for 3 of the 4 in a remarkable 2015 campaign. I mean WTF? Is it that weird religion she belongs to, suppressing her emotions ’til they blow on the big stage? She looked so uncharacteristically rattled against Venus, […]
