The 29-year-old Mexicali, Baja California native is a reporter for ESPN in Mexico.

Last night, Dipp was a sideline reporter for the English-language broadcast of the ‘Monday Night Football’ game between the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Chargers. Dipp’s appearance was inadvertently memorable:

“Here on the field, from up close, just watching… coach Vance Joseph… from here… you watch him now on the screen.”

Yeouch!

While some instantly questioned who allowed Dipp to step on the sideline…

Others were concerned for his safety.

This guy totally empathized with the young reporter.

And everyone else, it seems, couldn’t get enough.

Was he nervous? Was he working from a wonky teleprompter? Who knows.

Ah, it’s been a while since we’ve seen the “I like turtles!” kid

But his performance was memorable enough that someone nominated him for a new gig.

If you’re a fan of Mexican soccer, Dipp may look familiar. He’s the same reporter who made a Super Bowl bet with Mexican fútbol star Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez earlier this year.

Chicharito picked the Atlanta Falcons to win, and you know how that went…

Best of all, Dipp appeared to maintain his sense of humor after the gaffe:

Chances are that Dipp saw he was trending during the game, but didn’t have time to see why he was trending.

Hours after the game, though, Dipp posted a solemn video message addressing his appearance:

Even his friend, Chicharito, tweeted out words of support:

“Remember that there’s more good people out there, those who are happy with everything that happens to us. Me on the field and you in front of the microphone realizing our dreams and finding our happiness,” wrote Chicharito.
