Fox apologizes for showing unclothed Viking

Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was the Vikings leading receiver and had a go-ahead touchdown catch in the fourth quarter today.

Unfortunately, he also became the subject of an embarrassing mistake in the locker room afterward that caused Fox officials to issue an apology.

Shiancoe was inadvertently shown naked on television while a Fox camera crew taped owner Zygi Wilf’s presentation of the game ball to coach Brad Childress’ 19-year-old son Andrew, who is joining the Marine Corps on Monday.

Shiancoe was standing behind and to the side of Wilf with a towel partly covering his body. But not completely.

“It obviously was an oversight on our part and we apologize,” said Fox Sports vice president of Communications Dan Bell.
