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.

RIP Colbert Report

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.

Happy Thanksgiving, Snarfs

Please, enjoy Clippers/Pistons.

Happy Veteran’s Day! THANK YOU


My schedule was yanking and twisting over the last several days to seemingly set me up, magically, for the 9:30 AM ET wake up call that was the scheduled start time for the Lions in London. I woke up at 5:30, had a few Heinekens, and settled in. It was a beautiful day in Michigan, not a cloud in the sky, really. The weather was decent in Engl [...]

Peyton Manning Sets NFL Career Touchd...

And the Denver Broncos thrashed the San Francisco 49ers 42-17 on Sunday Night Football. Manning didn’t disappoint the national television audience, marching Denver down the field in their opening drive and finding his receiver to come within one touchdown of the all-time record. He promptly tied it on his next possession, finding Wes We [...]

Big Day for Detroit

Let’s rock downtown like we did for Monday Night Football, baby! This time, it starts at Ford Field. Look for the Lions to build on their previous two wins with Reggie Bush getting involved early – we can’t forget to get him going, that’s how he eventually explodes. If Matthew Stafford can keep making steady decisions, [...]


Best Day Ever.

Derek Jeter – My Way

Another Snarf Production:

They Don’t Write Them Any Bette...

It was the final home game at Yankee Stadium of Derek Jeter’s career. The Yankees led 5-2 going into the 9th inning. Baltimore hit a two run homer to trail 5-4. They tied it up on a solo home run. All of that had to happen so that in the bottom of the 9th, it could be tied. A leadoff single was bunted over to second, and low and behold, [...]
