ESPN commentator Bob Griese apologizes for taco comment

During a broadcast of last Saturday’s University of Minnesota-Ohio State football game on ESPN, commentator Bob Griese made a regrettable comment about Colombian-born NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

While promoting an upcoming NASCAR race, commentator Chris Spielman asked, “Where’s Juan Pablo Montoya?”

“He’s out having a taco,” Bob Griese answered.

At the end of the game, Griese apologized, saying that “Juan Pablo Montoya, he’s one of the best drivers in NASCAR.” ESPN has also released a statement regarding the comment.
