A sideline reporter stole the show during Monday Night Football

A sideline reporter stole the show during Monday Night Football

Monday night's matchup between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers quickly became less about the football and more about the commentators.

It's been a whirlwind few hours for ESPN sideline reporter Sergio Dipp.

Dipp hesitated and finally gave some scant details about Joseph's background and emphatically stating the coach was having "the time of his life". Mowins, who became just the second woman to call an National Football League game, dragged him through a night that seemed more like a preseason dress rehearsal than a Week 1 showtime (though Dipp helped that feeling).

Dipp, a reporter for ESPN in Latin American and a resident of Mexico, took a stab at a report on Denver first-year head coach Vance Joseph, a native of Marrero and former Shaw High School quarterback.

He seemed to be taking the response in stride after receiving some ribbing on social media.

Camera captures CT plane crash
The pilot, 79-year-old Manfred Forst, was flying towards Roberston Field Airport in CT on Monday morning at the time of the crash. Forst told the station on the phone that he was grateful and thankful that he was out of the hospital and doing fine.

On Tuesday morning, Dipp responded to the criticism with a heartfelt and emotional statement regarding the sideline flub.

It wasn't as painfully epic as the "Boom goes the dynamite" guy, but Twitter - rough crowd, that Twitter - immediately went to town on Dipp's "performance".

"Hopefully I'll have another chance", Dipp said.

"On some people's perspective, it all went wrong", Dipp said of his moment. "But I truly meant no disrespect, because all I wanted to do was to show some love to those two historical head coaches". "And be sure I'll make the most out of it".
