When television reporters are put on the air without knowing, they can slip up and say some things they normally wouldn't. This can lead to an uncomfortable situation for the reporter and a funny moment for the viewers.

Tom Yazwinski of Seattle's Q13 Fox had a pretty hilarious slip-up on Tuesday. He was talking sports with someone behind the scenes when the cameras unexpectedly put him on the air:

When he found out that he was live, his reaction said it all.

Given that he is in Seattle, it's safe to assume that he was calling the Texas Rangers a "sinking ship." The Rangers are in the AL West with the Seattle Mariners, and currently have the baseball rights to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
