06:23 AM ET 12.08 | A Fox spokesman apologized for an on-air mistake after the Vikings' 20-16 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. While a Fox camera crew taped owner Zygi Wilf presenting the game ball to coach Brad Childress, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was in the left side of the shot with a towel only partially covering him, leaving him partially exposed. "It was an obvious oversight on our part, and we apologize," said Dan Bell, the vice president of communications for Fox. The Web site deadspin.com posted pictures. Fox regularly goes to the locker room of victorious teams to capture the excitement and then quickly edits and posts the footage as part of their postgame coverage. A Vikings spokesman declined to comment.
