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.

DeAndre Jordan to Remain a Clipper

Smart move, pimpin’ Jordan shit on his Dallas verbal agreement as Doc Rivers, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and the whole crew descended upon his home in Houston last night to complete the deal. Home is where the heart is… Home is where your ❤ is. #WelcomeHomeDJ — LA Clippers (@LAClippers) July 9, 2015 Paul […]

Fundamentally Flawed

1,000,000 innings: All runs courtesy of home runs. Granted, it was electrifying. Alex Avila worked a walk, then Nick Castellanos a home run yard for the 2-0 start. In the very next at-bat, waiver claim call-up Krauss drilled one to right, a 3-0 lead. However, all those runs were undone by former Tiger Austin Jackson’s […]

Tigers Answer the Bell

Without their triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers simply tattooed the ball, scoring 12 runs on 19 hits. First, it was a barrage of solo home runs. Nick Castellanos struck first, sending one to left-center for a 1-0 lead. Then Victor Martinez tee’d off to right, again with none on. J.D. Martinez had […]

Sanchez Takes Detroit for Ride

For the first 22 outs at Comerica Park, the illustrious Anibal Sanchez threw a no-hitter. I could burst into tears right now remembering the hope and excitement that he gave us, bulding in the later innings. You could tell he was tiring in the 8th, having already walked the leadoff snarf. Over 100 pitches, a […]

Greatness Lurks, Always

They’re quite aware of what they’re going through…” ― David Bowie Source: Don’t You Forget About Me NO MORE ANTI-OBAMACARE NO MORE ANTI-GAY MARRIAGE NO MORE REPUBLICANS!

Tigers Fall in Fourteen

Brad jumbled around a perfectly good lineup in extras, pulling players too soon and then inserting our worst reliever to deliver the loss. It can be tough to be a Tigers fan. Fortunately, it’s not for a lack of player-effort. Down 4-2 in the 8th, J.D. Martinez sent a rocket over our left field fence […]

American Women Triumph Germans

It was a 2-0 bloodbath in Montreal. The girls collided heads early on, literally spilling blood on the grass. It was a nasty, penalty-ridden win for the girls in Red, White, and Blue. And it will all be remembered by a missed German penalty kick. For the first time in the 30-year history of Germany […]
