A Worthy Target of Outrage

If there's one thing I know about sports fans, it's that they loooooove to have themselves a good controversy to be outraged over. Whether it's a radio host accidentally swearing on the air, or an internet editor putting up an innocent, though unfortunate, headline, you can be sure the sports world is waiting on their collective high horse, ready to pounce at a moment's notice. Perhaps this tendency is mostly a creation of the media, or perhaps it speaks more to an unfortunate societal trend. I tend to think the latter is more likely, as these constant bursts of outrage seem to be more and more commonplace in any and every social forum.
