"I just wanna die! I just wanna die!" he said.

"Aw, it's OK!" Lara Spencer said as Champion hugged her.

It's Lara, Sam. Lara.

You could tell he was ashamed.

But being an anchor isn't easy. Co-workers' names aside (you have no excuse, Sam), there are some other tough names to get right.

"Former Bush administration official and Tea Party favorite Ben Sasse," an MSNBC anchor said.

"Our favorite GIF of the season. Is it GIF or GIF?" Newsy anchor Lexie Hammesfahr said.

"Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who's the host of F*ckabee," Fox anchor Megyn Kelly said.

You win some, you lose some. And for all the rest, you just get some great Internet bloopers.
