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.
That's a man in a Darth Vader mask successfully getting away with a bank robbery in Pineville, NC last Monday. Luckily no one was injured in the event. Meanwhile, Star Wars Night at the AHL Manchester Monarchs game featured a Vader who was clearly none too experienced with walking on ice.
Or maybe just failing to force choke members of the away team. Such is the mystery of the game.
