The Joy of Winning

Perhaps this has become almost expected and therefore gets little or no attention.

A celebration of Penn State’s 13-6 win over Ohio State on Saturday turned destructive as people pulled down light poles and street signs, climbed atop cars and tossed objects off balconies in downtown State College.

While not just in the world of college sports it is difficult to understand the mind set of, "I'm so happy, I'm gonna riot, burn, pillage..." Rather than an expression of happiness, a major victory by their team is an excuse to join in mass destruction that would be otherwise unthinkable. The old idea of leaving one's personal responsibility behind and giving in to the mindlessness of the mob is alive and well in Happy Valley.

And for the Ohio State fans:
