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.

Joe Dumars: A Living Legend

I’m so sorry Joe. I just have to stop and thank you for everything. #1 You met my dad, brother, and I in the Grand Rapids airport. As my dad is telling you what a huge fan we all are (and truly so), Dumars glanced at my brother in a Pippen jersey and me in my Mourning Charlotte. Our dad laughed and said, “Well I guess I’m th [...]

Clippers 117, Kings 101

7 blocks for Jordan.

Tigers 6, Padres 2

Justin Verlander was a one man show. Verlander threw seven innings, only surrendered two runs, struck out eight, walked one, got two hits, and scored. Goddamn. It was his first hit after 27 unsuccessful at bats. He said after the game the other guys have been ragging him every year with new jokes, and he had a big smile at first base after he [...]

Michigan Final Ranking


April in the A

Pistons lead by 18 for most of the game in Chicago until the Bulls prevail. The Red Wings trailed Carolina 2-1 and couldn’t quite tie it in the end. The Tigers got one hit in San Diego, falling 6-0. “April in the A”

Tigers Prevail in Extra Innings

Let’s skip the glossy parts and get right to the meat: Joe Nathan blew another save. And got another win. The Tigers led 6-3 when Nathan entered the bottom of the ninth. As I ate my corndog, everything seemed ok. Then the first run came in via a solo home run. No outs, 6-4. WTF? (I took my plate into the kitchen: “Bad plate.” [...]

Clippers Comeback Falls Just Short

Bring it on Oklahoma City. Bring it on. Blake Griffin scored 30 points and Chris Paul added 26. The Clippers trailed by double-digits until a 12-0 run brought them back in the 4th quarter. The final score was 107-101, and it was quite close at the end.

Cavs 122, Pistons 100


Red Wings Clinch Playoffs

It’s the longest active streak in the four major sports: 23 years in a row Detroit has made the NHL playoffs. Detroit outplayed the Penguins in Pittsburgh, but they fell 4-3 in a shootout. We led 1-0, then they got a cheap penalty and scored. We led 2-1, but they got a power play (cheap?) and scored. Down 3-2, Detroit rallied in the wan [...]
