Have sex with an intern? That will take a week or so before ESPN suspends you. But make a comment that’s horribly stereotypical of a racial group? Your butt’s on the street immediately! Just ask Bob Griese. Watch the video below. (At right, a recent picture of Juan Pablo Montoya, as drawn by Bob Griese.)
ESPN broadcaster Bob Griese has been suspended one week for a remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya. ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz says Griese will not be working a game this week. Krulewitz says ESPN has 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 has twice apologized on air for the remark.
