Sergio Dipp, new Monday Night Football sideline reporter steals the show, BLOWS UP Twitter

The awkward debut of ESPN’s Monday Night Football sideline reporter set the internet on fire and launched him into Twitter infamy.

Sergio Dipp met the Monday Night Football world during the second game of the night between the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers. And the world, apparently, will never be the same.

The 29-year-old native of Mexico, who has mainly appeared on the Spanish-language channel, ESPN Deportes, stumbled through his report and instantly caught the attention of viewers.

Never mind that history was made as Beth Mowins became the first woman in 30 years to do play-by-play for an NFL regular season game. Or that former Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan transitioned to TV commentator.

All attention was on Dipp when Mowins threw it to him in the first quarter to talk about Broncos head coach Vance Joseph.

“Beth, coach, it’s a pleasure to be with you guys…here on the field…from up close…just watching…coach Vance Joseph…from here. You watch him now on the screen,” Dipp began haltingly.  “The diversity in his background is helping him tonight. Quarterback at Colorado, defensive back in the NFL…and here he is, having the time of his life…this night making his head coaching debut.”

Twitter had a meltdown.

There were many who were reminded of the “Boom goes the dynamite!” guy.

Others couldn’t wait for Dipp’s return.

Props to the young Dipp for taking it all in stride as he attempted to report in his second language. He even joined in the social media fun later.

He released a video Tuesday commenting on his new-found fame and gave his new fans another reason to celebrate.

Twitter users could not get enough of the new Monday Night Football sensation.
