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

Rajai Walks It Off

Lest we forget who’s the best…

Red Wings Roll

Toronto came out dirty. They split open “The Mule’s” face just beside his eye almost immediately after the opening puck dropped. Johan (Mule) Franzen didn’t waste any time retaliating on the scoreboard. With the Red Wings earning a power play on a different high stick, the Maple Leafs mojo started to wane. Shortly afte [...]

Not Looking Good for the Rapist

“No one who is not a dealer is going to submit that many autographs at one time,” said Matt Powers of Powers Collectibles in Kansas City, which sells the autographs of more than 1,000 athletes. “But besides the number, the giveaway of the JSA authenticated items that you can see on eBay, that suggests it was a sit-down signi [...]

Blake Griffin Compares Donald Sterlin...

“Someone asked me the other day if I’m mad that he made out with $2 billion for selling the team,” Blake Griffin wrote. “Maybe a little bit. But in the end, I’m just happy he’s gone. I think about him pulling me around the White Party in Malibu, and a saying comes to mind: ‘Some people are so poor, al [...]

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.

DIRTY

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 [...]
