Sergio Dipp Sideline Broadcast Was the Best Part of Monday Night Football

Sergio Dipp Sideline Broadcast Was the Best Part of Monday Night Football

Dipp gave an awkward sideline report in the first quarter of Monday night's game between the Broncos and Chargers. I was starting my elementary school September 11, 2001, in Caliexico, Calif., born in Mexicali, Baha California, but growing up in the American environment as a minority - a minority like head coaches Vance Joseph [of the Broncos] and Anthony Lynn [of the Chargers]. "Quarterback at Colorado, defensive back in the National Football League, and here he is, having the time of his life this night, making his head coaching debut".

In a video posted to his Twitter account Tuesday morning, 29-year-old Dipp addressed the controversy behind his analysis of Coach Joseph.

Dipp has been with ESPN since 2013, reporting mainly for the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes.

"Sergio Dipp is basically me at a bar when I try speaking to women", Luke Bellus tweeted of Dipp's performance. You watch him now on the screen. But I truly meant no disrespect.

The Dipp disaster underlines once again the value of smart, experienced sideline reporters such as ESPN's Lisa Salters, NBC's Michele Tafoya, Fox's Erin Andrews and CBS' Tracy Wolfson. On the most heartfelt day in this great country made up by immigrants and on some people's perspective, it all went wrong.

I don't know much but I know I need Sergio Dipp on all the broadcasts from now on.

Dipp took all the attention in stride. Well, except for the reactions from Twitter, which had a ton of fun after Dipp went off the air.

We hope to see you on the sidelines throughout the season.

It doesn't appear Dipp will lose his job.
