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.

Dave Doubles Down

The Tigers GM was at it twice Thursday, trading shortstop Eugenio “Mr. Suave” Suarez along with a Whitecap for Cincinnati Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon. Suarez filled in nicely for our injured shortstop last season who will now be healthy, along with Andrew Romine as a backup. The West Michigan Whitecap was a former first round pick. [...]

“Nothing Is Given”

While visiting a children’s hospital, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick took on a nine year-old in Madden. Apparently, he took it completely seriously, going for two and kicking an onside kick with the lead. “He attempted to justify the surprise onside kick by pointing out that Cowboys fullback Tyler Clutts walked in fro [...]

Detroit Tigers Trade Rick Porcello to...

For Porcello, he will greatly be missed. A young stud in our rotation, he was starting to come into his own last season with a few shutouts. The groundballer had to be traded based on need only, for the Tigers have a deep rotation but a poor outfield, especially defensively. Cespedes will provide just that. As one of the best defensive left f [...]

Red Wings Skate Asses Off, Fall in Sh...

Detroit took 42 shots on the night; Toronto, 19. Only one went in for each team after 65 minutes of hockey. With no due respect to the Maple Leafs, they clutched and grabbed their way through regulation, uglying up the fine game of hockey our Red Wings skate so well at. Their lone goal came after an extremely cheap flipping of our player by c [...]

“A team spokesman told the decision to wear the shirts was made collectively between the players: “There were a variety of reasons why we wanted to wear the shirts,” said D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera. “There were quite a few families that lost their loved ones this year: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin … we [...]

“It’s just a terrible situation, you know what I mean,” [Reggie] Bush said. “It’s just unfortunate that this is still happening and that it is still going on and it affects everybody. It doesn’t just affect me, it affects everybody and we’re all in this together. “I just wanted to wear that on [...]

Broncos Stave off Bills

24-17 You think Peyton cares about records? He’ll run that ball all day.

Red Wings 3, Hurricanes 1

Tomas Tatar scored two goals for Detroit in Carolina behind Petr Mrazek in goal. Pavel Datsyuk added a goal of his own while assisting both to Tatar.

Lions Take Down Buccaneers

Detroit’s defense dominated Tampa Bay, sacking their QB six times, picking him off twice, and recovering a fumble en route to their 34-17 win. With Reggie Bush healthy, the Lions came out with a balanced running attack and kept at it for four quarters. Bush looked good in his return, getting back up when he was hit hard and mixing in th [...]
