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 check a score, read a game-story, or 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.

Panhandling Ordinance Shames Grand Ra...

by Sara Ransom (Sara Ransom)  On June 3, the Grand Rapids City Commission delayed the proposed ban with a divided vote. Decision on the panhandling ordinance has been postponed to allow time to further review the proposed restrictions. “At the moral level, it is not a crime to be poor, it is not a crime to ask for help. It is really a measure [...]

Fuck This Shit

IPHONE FAG GENERATION

YOU ALL LOOK LIKE YOU’RE PLAYING A GODDAMN GAME BOY. It’s sooo pathetic. It’s the fucking head-down era everywhere I look – nobody can think for themselves anymore. Do you idiots realize how unintelligent you’re becoming? Can you imagine in any conversation if someone constantly had to look up their information a [...]

Don’t Squander This, Kid

Northwestern co-captain says union not necessary for our team – ESPN. You’re killing me. You’re school earned the right to do this – please, respect yourself and do it. This is bigger than you. You are being swayed by asshole adults who only care about money. Listen to me. UNIONS ARE OUR RIGHT. Do your history, look up [...]

Really, Snarfmerica?

I see you polling on SportsNation with the Pacers at 56% to win the East. Just thought we should write this inane prediction down. Soooo early in the season, plus these Pacers haven’t proven shit. This is a joke. The Heat are so much better than everyone else it’s sick. The Spurs had the coach but not the skill. That was the close [...]

We Take Care of Our Own

I’ve watched Treme and have seen the lack of help New Orleans received post-Katrina. I don’t care who it is, where it is, or why it is, but we need to help people. New Orleans still needs us. Our ghettos need us. Grand Rapids needs us. Ottawa Hills High School needs us. The Philippines need us. It doesn’t seem like we put en [...]

André Gide Quotes

Mermaids: What Aren’t They Tell...

Has anyone else fancied a glance at the show on Discovery? Scientists have evidence of fucking Mermaids. Seriously. These creatures seem to have evolved into human-fish. The footage is amazing: Lol. I know this is ridiculous. But then again, it isn’t. Christopher Columbus, the Vikings, and snarfs throughout history logged records of [...]

Halftime Speech to My Clippers

Great second quarter. There’s just one problem: the celebrating. You can’t curb raw emotion, but doing a dance every time a three-pointer is attempted is too douchey. The douches don’t win. Ask Jim Harbaugh. Ask the 2010-11 Miami Heat. We are already really good on our own, we don’t have to show up our opponents. Let&# [...]

Why Do Lots of People Think Time Isn&...

We perceive time by change. Memory is changes in your brain. Given a shuffled sequence of snapshots of the universe, your own state included, you would always perceive them in the ‘right’ order. So there does not appear to be any need for an actual passage of time. What does matter is that adjacent states exist with consistent rel [...]
