ESPN's Sergio Dipp shares emotional video with statement after ridiculed sideline report

Chicharito supports Sergio Dipp after Monday Night Football disaster

Sergio Dipp became the No. 1 Twitter trend Monday night after he gave a memorable sideline report during the National Football League game featuring the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers.

In-game sideline reports are usually about the most meaningless part of an entire broadcast but Sergio Dipp has come out of nowhere and absolutely changed the game.

If the instantly viral awkwardness of Sergio Dipp were created to distract from the anticipated Rex Ryan debut, ESPN outdid itself.

Podcaster Sam Vecenie urged ESPN to "replace the bottom score ticker with just a timer of when Sergio Dipp is returning to air".

"It's a pleasure to be with you guys here on the field from up close just watching Coach Vance Joseph from here", Dipp stumbled as he talked about the Denver Broncos' new head coach.

Dipp took it in stride, though, with some self-deprecating humor of his own.

Early the next morning, however, Dipp showed why he was given the "Monday Night Football" gig in the first place, by giving a heartfelt statement about the experience in a video that he posted on Twitter.

In his postgame Twitter video, Dipp seemed somewhat disappointed about what had happened and appeared to be holding back some emotions. Hopefully, I'll have another chance.

"On some people's perspective, it all went wrong", Dipp said of his moment. Dipp, who was born in Mexico, said he wanted to "show some respect" to the two minority head coaches as a minority himself.
