Much of the media attention before Monday Night Football was focused on Beth Mowins and how she would become the first woman to call play-by-play for a nationally televised NFL game. But sideline reporter Sergio Dipp, an otherwise nationally unknown sideline reporter, unintentionally stole the spotlight with the most awkward commentary you’ll ever see.
You know who wasn’t having the time of his life? Ripp during those 30 seconds when he had no insight to provide and basically nothing to say. As bad as it was, Twitter loved it.

Sergio Dipp: Hold my beer
Replace the bottom score ticker with just a timer of when Sergio Dipp is returning to air. I’m not even kidding. https://t.co/MgohEDTCVp— Sam Vecenie (@Sam_Vecenie) September 12, 2017
The 29-year-old Dipp, for what it’s worth, has been with ESPN since 2013, mostly on the ESPN Deportes side. So, it’s not like this was Dipp’s first time in front of a camera or speaking in front of millions of viewers, though his first language is Spanish.
For what it’s worth, Dipp handled himself well after his infamous debut, taking to Twitter to embrace his newfound status.
When the game was over, Dipp also provided an explanation for his flubbed segment in which he cited 9/11, his Mexican heritage, and his own views as a minority.
“Hopefully,” he said, “I’ll have another chance. And I’ll make the most out of it.”
