Democratic Senator Mocked for On-Field Behavior at Rose Bowl: 'Come on Man'

A Democratic senator became the target of mockery after behaving strangely at the opening coin toss of Monday's Rose Bowl in California.

Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona filmed his surroundings with a cell phone at the start of the contest between Penn State and Utah.

The former naval aviator appeared more interested in his phone than the beginning of the game.

Kelly filmed with his phone -- all the while a broadcast camera captured the pre-coin toss in far greater detail than his phone could have.

The referee overseeing the coin toss got Kelly's name wrong after introducing Kelly's wife.

"Ms. Gabby Giffords, alongside her husband here, Senator Mark Lewis," the ref said on a live stadium microphone.

Giffords, a former congresswoman, served as the Grand Marshal of the bowl game's annual parade.

Kelly smiled awkwardly as the referee drew a blank on his name.

Some who watched the game made light of the bizarre exchange, suggesting Kelly deserved to be misidentified.

Kelly won re-election as a senator in November in a disastrous midterm for Arizona Republicans.

Democrats now control the offices of the governor, attorney general, and secretary of state for the first time since 1974.

Penn State defeated Utah in the Rose Bowl by a score of 35-21.
