“It was an accident. I wish I knew her name so I can apologize. I am sorry.”
These were the words uttered from Darren Moscoe, also known as UK Boogie Man, after his mishap at Tuesday’s Kentucky-Georgia game when during his traditional dance routine he picked up a 10-year-old fan and then dropped her when he fell. The mishap made ESPN and even FoxNews.
Following the John Calipari postgame radio show I encountered Darren alone in the lobby of the Hyatt. There was no doubt he was extremely remorseful and heartbroken by what transpired during his now infamous “Monie Monie” dance.
With tears streaming down his face he made it very clear he wanted to get a heartfelt apology to the girl and her family. As you can see in the video that I did with him, this is a man who was caught up in the excitement of the game and clearly knows he made a mistake.
