"It's 9/11, I'm in Denver, Colo., and this is the NFL, a "Monday Night Football" game between the Broncos and the Chargers, the biggest stage possible", he said in the video.

"Here on the field, from up close, just watching [Broncos] coach Vance Joseph, from here".

Sergio Dipp - who became famous Monday night for his epically awful "MNF" sideline report - says he wants another shot to cover the National Football League. assuring the viewers he'll do better next time!

Dipp, who is an anchor for ESPN's "SportsCenter" in Latin America, was also making his first appearance on MNF as a sideline reporter. He touches on being a minority in a country of immigrants, and reiterates that he wanted to show respect to head coaches Vance Joseph and Anthony Lynn. But among these changes, the early star of this new squad has to be Sergio Dipp.

No way, Jose: Hurricane slightly weakens in Atlantic
The data is all over the place but now it does look like Jose will once again make another push towards the East Coast long-term. But, Jose is expected to strengthen slightly by late in the week to 80 miles per hour - still a Category 1 hurricane.

Dipp is a Mexican journalist who, according to his bio, has covered the NFL, NBA, and Olympics in the past. Sideline reports are nearly never that informative or entertaining; they are relics from a bygone era, where fans couldn't find out about injury news with one look at Twitter.

"Hopefully I'll have another chance and be sure I'll make the most out of it", he said. ESPN as of Tuesday had not responded to the blunder or whether Dipp would make a return to reporting in English, however. "But I truly meant no disrespect".

Dipp, who caught wind of the reactions and the criticism, quickly uploaded a video offering a honest apology for his fumble and pleaded for a second chance from viewers. He tweeted a screen grab of the Google search page with the words "how to deal with fame" and a crying with laughter emoji.
