On Wednesday night, bugs attempted to take over the baseball world

If you sat down at your MLB-watching devices hoping to watch some baseball on Wednesday night, you were probably horrified by what you saw. Instead of Mike Trout making highlight-reel catches or Josh Harrison singing along the basepaths, there were just BUGS. 



The grasshopper and spider were teaming up at Wrigley Field during the Brewers-Cubs game to try to bring down the 102-year-old stadium, while the mantis (we think it's the same #RallyMantis) was crawling around the Tigers dugout during the Royals' 4-1 win in Detroit. Probably spying. Definitely praying.

Anyway, this is it, guys. We had a great run. But just as this classic film predicted years ago, the bugs are now in charge.
