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

Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.




Good Luck Tonight, G

Since this video first emerged it has brought me to tears nearly every time: This little girl has the spirit of the 60’s oozing through her veins, bringing back music that almost seemed gone. I wish her the best tonight, but no matter what, we’ve all been changed forever from this young British rock star, […]

Missed You

I left Jess June 5th, right before midnight to fly back to Grand Rapids. While I’d had the time of my life in Canada, they sent me home six weeks earlier than we’d planned, forcing us to wait twice as long (3 months) to see each other again. Jess will be making the same trip […]

International Love

So, I built this article up for a while. I was so overjoyed upon finally seeing in person the woman I’ve loved for so long, and being with her in Canada has made me happier than I’ve ever felt before. Michigan won their first Final Four game in epic fashion, completing a sensational 2nd half […]

Returning Sports 2 Glory

Pavel Datsyuk. The Women’s U.S. Hockey Team. The NBA All-Star Game. The Super Bowl. All redeemed in 2018 – not to mention a plethora of recent past champs: our Grand Rapids Griffins winning the 2017 Calder Cup Championship, the Chicago Cubs & Houston Astros winning the last two World Series; LeBron hoisting Cleveland’s first trophy; […]

Final Night O’ Flood

Fuck thiiis!!! Learned a lot in the last week, though. I am going to marry my girl in Canada someday. Have a family. I reflected on the love I have for my chat, “Let’s Get High,” and the utter disdain I leave behind to the cowards at mmparty. YOU DARE FUCK WITH SOMETHING I LOVE […]

Numb as Fuck

Simply disgusted by the overall state of this world right now. It’s like human decency is dead. If we don’t all slow down RIGHT NOW AND WAKE THE FUCK UP – all your shitty zombie movies will become a reality. “Comfortably Numb,” the famous Pink Floyd song echoes in my brain constantly throughout the day […]

Fuck Bois = Sleep Loss

Imma eradicate the living snarf out of every one of you last fuck boys… I now know why I haven’t had a kid yet – too much bull shit. Trump – you delusional cock-sucker. I await the demise of your presidency with almost the excitement of oldschool upon ya man’s arrival. Haha but serious, I’m […]

Allowed to Sit

My brother & I thought for a while about how to handle the national anthem when we returned to Van Andel Arena to see our banner raised from winning the 2017 Calder Cup Championship. Should we sit? Is there room to knee? We elected to stand during “O Canada,” and sit for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” […]

Don’t Fuck with Jemele Hill

I’m fucking serious. How much more personal am I going to let the biggest bully to inherit the oval office get? Jemele Hill, focal point of ESPN, spoke out against the President and was then told by that said man, with prolific power, that she, a journalist, should be fired. For coherently, non-venomously, & articulately […]
