What happened to this guy could have happened to any of us...

Wisconsin basketball player Nigel Hayes seems like a nice guy, but apparently he's not too smooth. In a pause between answering questions during a press conference, Hayes didn't realize his mic was still on when he made a comment to his teammate that he meant to be private. Little did he know, the entire conference heard what he said!

What happens next turns out to be an awkward moment for Hayes (and probably the stenographer he was eyeing too!). Who hasn't been in a situation like Hayes'? Have you ever said something embarrassing in front of someone you liked? Did it end well? We can only hope that Hayes ended up with a date at the end of the night because of it.
