    A common place in sports is the post championship celebration. Be it the Super Bowl, World Series, college sports, whatever. After the game the network reporter has to interview some old dude on some sort of stage during the trophy presentation. Odds are, the old dude is wearing some tacky sport coat and has a hair piece. More often then not it's the team owner, a bowl representative,  a corporate sponsor, or basically someone who had nothing to do with the game on the field. Why does this guy always think he has to grab the microphone along with the reporter while being interviewed? There's nothing more uncomfortable to watch then three man hands struggling for supremacy of the microphone.

    Hey bad wearing sport coat sponsor guy, leave our microphone alone!!

    That is all.
