ESPN color analyst Bob Griese was suspended for saying Colombian Juan Pablo Montoya was not in the NASCAR Sprint Cup top five because he "was out having a Taco." This raises the question: do they eat tacos in Colombia?

To find out, we called our favorite Colombian restaurant in Houston, Mi Pueblito. Angie, who picked up the phone, denied that Colombians eat tacos:

"We don't eat tacos. We eat empanadas and arepas, which are similar to a Mexican gordita, but we don't eat any tacos. And our food is not spicy."


There you have it. Bob Griese deserved to be suspended for not understanding Colombian food. Though, in his defense, we think he was referencing a completely different taco. [Deadspin]
