Announcer Cracks 'Taco' Joke at Juan Montoya

10/25/2009 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A college football broadcast came to a screeching halt yesterday because of announcer Bob Griese -- after he verbally vomited a highly inappropriate comment about Colombian NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

 Juan Montoya
During the Ohio State/Minnesota game, the NASCAR promotion turned nasty when broadcaster Chris Spielman asked where Montoya was in the standings ... then Griese let this gem fly: "He's out having a taco."

At the end of the game, Griese issued a bland apology, saying, "Juan Pablo Montoya, he's one of the best drivers in NASCAR, I just want to apologize for the comment that i made earlier in the ballgame."

He made an inappropriate remark and you added insult to injury by spelling the man's home country of Colombia incorrectly. COLOMBIA.

At "PC SUCKS" & "SO WHAT" & "happy about it":
I find joy in pointing out to you that the latin or hispanic population will far outnumber the demographics whites in the United States
and that you will have to eat your words.

Totally inappropriate remark by Bob Griese.
And, if our American citizens didn't comsume the illegal drugs brought in from Colombia, there would be no drugs brought in from Colombia!

Juan Pablo Montoya is nothing more then a drug pusher illegal alien
When are all of you going to quit defending the africans and those south of the border when they steal your jobs and our money and then stab us in the back ?

Why do you feel it is fine for this taco to take millions of our dollars while some American should have his job ?

Just look at all the gangs out there raping, killing, stealing, selling drugs, not many are white Americans.

No apology was necessary. Insults happen everyday, deal with it. Just because someone is made to say "im sorry" dosent change anything.
