ESPN's Sergio Dipp Says He Hopes For Another Chance at 'MNF' Reporting
"I truly meant no disrespect, because all I wanted to do was show some love to these two historical head coaches," the reporter says.
Sergio Dipp became the No. 1 Twitter trend Monday night after he gave a memorable sideline report during the NFL game featuring the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers.
Dipp, who mainly works for Spanish-language ESPN Deportes, set social media ablaze early on in the game when he stumbled through an awkward story about Broncos' head coach, Vance Joseph.
Despite pleas over social from his newfound fans, ESPN did not cut back to him for the remainder of the evening.
In the early morning hours on Tuesday, Dipp posted on Twitter an apology for his reporting fumble, saying all he wanted to do was show some respect to Joseph, because like himself, Joseph and Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn, are minorities with significant accomplishments, all together on a meaningful night in the country, the anniversary of 9/11. He added that he hoped he would get another shot at Monday Night Football.
"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 show some love to these two historical head coaches. Hopefully, I'll have another chance. And be sure, I'll make the most out of it. "
