LePhilistine has learned that ESPN has suspended broadcaster and NFL Hall of Famer Bob Griese one week for a remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

An ESPN spokesmodel Josh Krulewitz says the legendary Dolphin will not be working a game this week. Krulewitz says ESPN has spoken to Griese and “he understands the punch line was weak.”

The Jan Murray-style delivery occurred 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 from Columbia.

Griese replied he was “out having a taco.”

In a tearful apology, Griese explained “I should have said doing a line of coke. He’s a Columbian, not a Mexican. I apologize for my lack of wit.”
