Bob Griese suspended one week because of taco comment
ESPN has suspended Bob Griese for one week for a remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.
ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz says ESPN officials have spoken to Griese and “he understands the comment was inappropriate.”
During ESPN's broadcast of the Minnesota-Ohio State game Saturday, a graphic was shown listing the top five drivers in NASCAR's points race. Fellow analyst Chris Spielman asked where was Montoya, who is Colombian.
Griese replied he was “out having a taco.” He later apologized for the remark (see video).
