The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals are facing off in a Monday Night Football match up as each team is looking to avoid falling to 0-2 to start the 2013-14 regular season and there was one fan in the crowd that caught everyone’s attention.
Twitter was immediately buzzing after a man was shown on the screen, but ESPN announcers Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden failed to realize who the man in the crowd was.
However, social media was there to remind us all that it was none other than funk master Bootsy Collins.
Here is the shot that the ESPN cameras caught of Collins sitting in the crowd, via CJ Fogler:

It is sad to see Gruden and Tirico not picking up that it was Bootsy Collins, but what else should we expect from the pair.
If there is any chance we could top the Eminem interview in the booth with Kirk Herbstreit from earlier in the college football season, an interview with good ole Bootsy would give us a respectable challenge.
