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.

David Morian, 23 of Grand Blanc, Michigan, went the distance this summer. “Morian tattooed the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the Detroit Lions logo on the inside of his left calf during the “Dave and Chuck The Freak Morning Show” on Detroit radio station WRIF this summer. “It’s been an experience, I guess,” Morian told […]

You came in when we needed you most, mid-George W. Bush. What would we have done without your humor in such times of lunacy? Now that we’ve finally elected a black president, we can only hope we’ll be safe without you. Thanks, G.
