Playing the Field: Sage Steele, Jalen Rose flirt on live TV

There's very little more awkward than two TV hosts not realizing the camera is rolling.



There's very little more awkward than two TV hosts not realizing the camera is rolling.

There are plenty of infamous examples. Everyone remembers Bill O'Reilly flipping out back in his "Inside Edition" days. ESPN's Chris Berman had a particularly epic meltdown ("It's like no one here has worked on TV before!") on "Monday Night Football." And in honor of NBC4 New York's Sue Simmons, who retired (coughfiredcough) after 32 years this week, we present one of the funniest F-bombs in news history.

With two outs in the ninth, down by one run, the Cardinals' Tyler Greene tried to steal second and put the tying run in scoring position. When the throw got away, Greene just kept running ... until being tagged out at home to end the game. Walk-off error!
