TheSportingSnarf  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.


I really can’t stand today’s sports world where every player you grow to love, often from day one at the draft, eventually leaves either because we’re too stupid to pay them or they get greedy. No matter what, it’s always about money. Tomorrow begins the NBA Free Agency period. DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers center, and […]

How About Them Tigers?

Enjoy the sunset they just walked you off into, world. After trailing essentially the whole game, down 4-0 after eight innings, Detroit rallied to tie it in the bottom of the 8th. With Chicago’s starter in past 100 pitches, Ian Kinsler was plunked with the bases loaded to bring in the Tigers’ first run. You’d […]

Welcome to Detroit, Stanley Johnson!

Here are Stan Van’s thoughts, plus some nice quotes courtesy of Johnson: “I think with the team they have now, we can be a playoff team right away,” he said. “I […]

Cheaters Not Champions

[When Emmanuel Sanders] was asked by a camper if he was mad about the scandal, he said, according to NBC 9News, “Yeah, yeah, I’m kind of mad. I don’t think that they [New England] should be the Super Bowl champion this year.” Sanders, who thrived in conjunction with Peyton Manning after joining the Broncos as a free […]

Miguel Cabrera Steals the Show

This article was going in the general direction of balls and strikes until Miguel Cabrera gave us the moment of the year. In a 7-1 blowout, Cabrera was talking to an Indians child-fan in the stands. This kid caught a foul ball with his hat, and boy was he ecstatic. Snarfenheim pointed right at Big […]

Battle in Cleveland

It’s a shame there will be no racist comments about the Indians going into battle – tempting? FUCK IT: TIGERS VS. INDIANS = LET THE RACISM BEGIN! GO DETROIT! This affair was not a pitcher’s duel. Kyle Ryan nor Trevor Bauer reached the 4th inning. The Tigers worked the hell out of Bauer, starting in […]

Father’s Day Parade

Detroit bombed away for father’s everywhere (especially mine), beating New York 12-4 at Yankee Stadium. Even Andrew Romine partook, hitting one of five Tiger home runs on the day. J.D. Martinez stole the show, sending three over the left, center, and right field walls, respectively. Detroit struck early with six runs in the first two […]
