Hot mics… they’ll get you every time. Just ask Robert Durst.

Fortunately, this latest gaffe was a lot more innocent.

Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes was having some fun with the stenographers at a press conference in L.A. on Wednesday, trying to test their skills with a complicated word: “syzygy.”

Soon after, one of these women caught his attention, and he shared his opinion of her with his teammates unaware that everyone in the room could hear him as well.

“God she’s beautiful,” he said, quickly realizing his mistake. He then covered his face in shame as he was suddenly thrust into viral video stardom.
