Announcer Apologizes for Cracking ‘Taco’ Joke About Colombian NASCAR Driver

(TMZ) - During the Ohio State/Minnesota game, the NASCAR promotion turned nasty when broadcaster Chris Spielman asked where Colombian NASCAR driver Juan Pablo was in the standings ... then Bob 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."
