Infinite applause for Jeremy Schaap, who gave a straight-laced World Cup report from Manaus without saying a word about the massive cicadas crawling on him until Mike Tirico spoke up:
Schaap is a pro's pro, though perhaps we should just let the bugs do these reports from now on. They're easily big enough to hold a microphone.

Hate to disappoint everyone. We PUT those bugs on my shoulder and microphone. If they'd just flown onto me, I would have shrieked.— Jeremy Schaap (@JeremySchaap) June 22, 2014
I TAKE BACK EVERYTHING I SAID ABOUT SCHAAP BEING A PRO. JOURNALISM IS DEAD.
