WGN reporter Dina Bair had to school a Cubs fan on proper mic usage after he exorcised years of disappointment by yelling explosively into a microphone live on-air during the station’s coverage of the Cubs victory parade..

Bair didn’t really ask the man a question before he screamed “GO CUBS!” a couple of times into the mic.

“It’s a microphone,” said Bair. “You don’t need to scream in it.”

There’s no word on the condition of the person running audio back at the station.
