The Boston Marathon is a sporting event, and so it stands to reason that sports media outlets are covering the fatal bombing near the race's finish line yesterday. This does not sit well with the internet's "stick to sports" brigade, which will not rest until sports are stuck to, stubbornly.

(How would they have preferred ESPN cover the marathon, I wonder? "In a tactical race, Lelisa Desisa won the 117th Boston Marathon with a time of 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 22 seconds, snapping a string of three consecutive Kenyan victories. Let's go to the highlights.")

Here is everyone who thinks we should all stick to sports right now.
