Trust us, we’re TV people — when there is a microphone in front of you, you have to be careful about what you say, because it will pick up everything.
University of Wisconsin Badgers sophomore Nigel Hayes learned that lesson in a press conference Thursday.
Hayes whispered to his teammates, “Gosh, she’s beautiful,” apparently about someone in the crowd. Unfortunately for him, the microphone picked it up, and he soon realized that everyone had heard what he said.
It’s unclear whether Hayes was talking about the reporter or the stenographer, but it appears that he was definitely embarrassed.
Earlier in the week, the Badgers players were captured interacting with the stenographer, absolutely mystified.
