Jeremy Schaap deals with giant moths at World Cup

Jeremy-Schaap-mothsESPN’s Jeremy Schaap was reporting live from the site of Team USA’s upcoming World Cup match against Portugal on Sunday, and the conditions were unlike anything he had ever experienced before. We’re not talking torrential downpours or scorching heat, either. Schaap was working alongside gigantic insects all day long.

At one point while he was on live TV, one giant moth landed on Schaap’s shoulder and another on his microphone. The US-Portugal game is being played at the Amazonia Arena, which is located extremely close to a massive rainforest in Manaus. This should help give you a better idea of just how enormous some of these creatures are.

I think it’s obvious that the US-Portugal outcome depends on which team’s players are more comfortable with giant insects. If one of these moths lands in Cristiano Ronaldo’s hair, he’ll either become useless or get so angry the United States won’t stand a chance. Let’s hope it’s the former.
