On Monday, Penn State and Utah compete in this year’s Rose Bowl, with Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and his wife, former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) having taken part in the coin toss. The senator had his phone with him as he awkwardly stood behind his wife to film it. “Mark Kelly” has been trending over Twitter as a result, and not just because of the Democratic politicians’ presence.

Whil head referee Michael Vandervelde referred to Giffords correctly, he incorrectly referred to her husband as “Senator Mark Lewis.” 

In addition to people reacting to the referee flubbing Kelly’s name, many also chimed in about how he had his phone out.
