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

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

"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again."[10] “It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”[11] via André Gide – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

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 [...]

College: Where You’re Forced to...

Heaven forbid not knowing… Little Boxes!

For Better or Worse

Mark it down that ESPN thinks Bears/Texans is a Super Bowl preview. I don’t think so.

It’s Me Wiz

I’m named after pissing; I needed Kanye West’s leftovers; I don’t like blunts; WTF?

One Last Facebook-Bash

Facebook turns people into objects… and you know it.

Today in Snarf

Caution against taking the game for granted. Example: Detroit Tigers Fox Sports announcing team Mario/Rod love declaring runs before they happen. Today, “Big D” Delmon Young was at the plate, and Rod says something to the effect of “the Tigers will get another run or two here.” Until it’s over, I’m not sayi [...]

UFC: For the 150th Time, WHO THE FUCK...

Just take off your diaper and admit that you’re gay. Don’t Let This Be You

Leaving the Past

Try to confuse you, makin’ it hard to follow this: capitalism and democracy are not synonymous You swallow propaganda like a birth control pill sellin’ your soul to the eye on the back of the dollar bill But that will never be me, cause I am leavin’ the past like an abused wife with the kids, leavin’ your ass Like a dr [...]

Call of Douche

EVERYONE loves Call of Duty Modern Fagfare, except me. When I see buildings being bombed and blown up, people (real humans, not Super Mario) being shot, bloodied, and killed – believe it or not – it’s too real for me. I wasn’t born into an era of war let alone a country who experiences this (see: Syria), but I’m [...]
