LOS ANGELES (97.1 The Ticket) -- There was a little drama in the big Monday Night Football showdown between the Rams and Chiefs in Los Angeles as the home team pulled out a wild 54-51 win in the third highest scoring game in NFL history.

Not only was there drama on the field, but apparently in the broadcast booth as well.

Social media blew up late Monday night when a tweet went viral, stating that ESPN aired a "live look-in" at a Buffalo Wild Wings, but claimed it was the "Almoa Bar" in Mexico City, where the game was originally scheduled to be played before it was moved to LA due to poor field conditions.

While the tweet does not have sound, analyst Jason Witten apparently called the bar the "Almoa," while video clearly shows it was at a Buffalo Wild Wings.

Later, a second tweet surfaced that did include sound of broadcaster saying "Almoa" or "Alboa."

Social media began blowing up, not only with insults toward ESPN, but with some good old fashioned investigating.

At first, a simple Google search for "Almoa Bar" in Mexico City did not provide any results. There are, however several places with the similar word, "alboa" in their titles, one of which is apparently a bowling alley.

The original tweet claims it was at a BWW's in Burbank, Calif., but the claim is not supported by any evidence.

There is however, at least one Buffalo Wild Wings in Mexico City.

The Spanish broadcast reportedly was calling it a BWW's.

The official B-Dubs account even weighed in with a vague tweet.

Whether the bar was in Mexico City, California or elsewhere, this is not a good look for ESPN.
