By now most everyone has heard about the stammering performance of NFL sideline reporter Sergio Dipp during Monday Night Football’s recent broadcast of the Broncos vs. Chargers game. It was bad. Real bad. You can watch it here if you doubt me.
But let’s set the record straight as to who is to blame for his performance. This wasn’t a bad case of nerves or lack of preparation on Dipp’s part. After all, the guy is a 29 year old, English-as-a-Second-Language reporter for ESPN Desportes, the network’s Spanish speaking channel. So the question is not what was with Dipp’s halting speech pattern.
