Default Griese Suspended by ESPN

ESPN broadcaster Bob Griese has been suspended one week for a remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/1..._n_335070.html

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."

I don't think they eat tacos in Columbia.

He should have said he was "out harvesting coca leaves".

The national dish of Columbia seems to be a type of potato soup:

Ajiaco is a Colombian potato soup. Although several regions of Colombia have their distinct recipe, the most famous is ajiaco santafereño, named after Santa Fé de Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, where it is a cultural mainstay. It typically contains pieces of chicken, large chunks of corn on the cob, two or three kinds of native potatoes (tiny papas criollas that fall apart and thicken the soup, and give the soup its characteristic dark yellow color; the waxy sabanera and/or the soft pastusa), and guasca (Galinsoga parviflora), a weedy, aromatic herb common in all America that lends the dish part of its distinctive flavour.

The soup is typically served with heavy cream, capers and avocado, all mixed in just before eating in the proportions each individual prefers. Ajiaco is so heavy that it is usually considered a full meal. In the highly regional Colombian cuisine, this is most representative dish of Bogotá.
(wiki)

Sounds pretty good.

He wouldn't have gotten into any trouble if he'd just said, "Probably out eating potato soup."

I heard the clip of him saying that this morning. It sounded like they had practiced it because the other guy delivered the "where is he" line like he was setting it up. The radio guys also made fun of the taco thing and their suggestion was that he should have said coke instead.

If only someone like Limbaugh had said this, then everyone would really be upset.

That's stupid. A comment like that isn't bad at all. Are you telling me that Hispanic people are offended at the idea that people think they eat tacos? When I was in Korea they made fun of how all we eat is bread, milk and cheese. And I didn't care.

He could have said, "out necklacing innocent civilians". Oh wait, that's Haiti.

Actually, all kidding aside, what a total idiot.

No one buries their kimchi anymore. And it is delicious! But don't you dare suggest that a Korean eats kimchi and rice! That's racist!
