Reporter gets attacked by wayward ball, keeps on truckin'

Now this is professionalism.

It's not like that ball just floated in there -- that thing was on a line and headed right for Brewers reporter Sophia Minnaert. Not only was she largely unflustered by the stealth attack, she just kept on going with her report after picking her microphone up and letting out a cathartic "yeah."

The life of a reporter is a tough one. Just when you think your only worries are being showered with gatorade or pied in the face, you learn about the dangers of vicious stray baseballs. Maybe journalism schools should start teaching self-defense alongside magazine writing.
