It's not a typo, "sport" can be used as a verb meaning to display or
have a notable feature, e.g.[1]:

    Jen's sporting a new pair of shoes; he was sporting a new wound from
    the combat

But maybe that copy should be simplified. I think the GFW bug tracker is
the right place to raise that as a suggestion[2].
