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.

Worst Team to Ever Win the American L...

If you didn’t think these playoffs were fucked, look again… I know first hand how average those fucking losers are, the Tigers beat them every step of the way and in every meaningful game. This is truly the circus.

Bo Jackson Tried to Help

I AM NOT TRYING TO USE THIS ARTICLE AS MY OWN (THIS IS AN ESPN ARTICLE THAT I SUMMARIZED FOR THE PEOPLE TO GET THE INFORMATION). The following quotes are from Bo Jackson during “The Jim Rome Show:” “I really don’t know who is giving this young man guidance,” Jackson said in the interview. “I have communicat [...]

Alex Avila Not Retiring

Tigers catcher Alex Avila has taken a tremendous beating behind home plate over the years. He seems to catch more foul tips, bats-on-the-backswing and just about every other thing catchers suffer back there. Avila suffered another concussion in the Tigers’ ALDS Game 3 loss to the Orioles, but he says that he’s going to be fine for the start o [...]

Go Get Kirk Gibson

I’ll always appreciate what you did, Brad, but you fucked up the best team in baseball when it mattered most. Game One: You start Max Scherzer over Justin Verlander. That’s a Tiger-criminality, snarf. Verlander is our guy. Did you forget how clutch he was for us down the stretch? You can toss the numbers out for the MVP – wh [...]

Charles Grodin: LOUIE

The Violin Scene – LOUIE

I saw some girls playing different violins at ArtPrize, and they, like this episode, brought me to tears.


Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen called for the NFL to suspend Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict for intentionally trying to injure him and quarterback Cam Newton following touchdowns in Sunday’s 37-37 tie. Video shows Burfict twisting and “cranking” the ankles of both players after they scored. “Puni [...]

I’m Crazy

Lions Defense Dominates in Minnesota

Without Reggie Bush or Calvin Johnson, the Detroit Lions beat the Vikings in Minnesota 17-3. There is much to celebrate, for the defense sacked Teddy Bridgewater eight times (most since ’97), picked him off three times, and didn’t allow a single touchdown. However, the Lions put way too much pressure on themselves down the stretch [...]

Michigan Tops Penn State

Looking spectacular in their all-blue night uniforms, Michigan ended it’s three game losing streak with a defensive triumph over Penn State – “Da Pervs.” Our quarterback was banged up, but he still went back into the game after sitting out. Our defense allowed zero fourth quarter points and took the game home on a safe [...]
