Ron Burgandy on Sports

by Kody Mac

Over the weekend, Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" character, Ron Burgundy, covered the Roar of the Rings, Canada’s Olympic Curling Trials, for TV broadcaster TSN in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The Roar of the Rings was a week-long event and Burgundy called live game action with the regular curling broadcaster.

A statement from Ron Burgundy said: "Marked by the gods of broadcasting and placed into this shimmering green sphere like a golden egg in hay, chosen like an unclean jackal by Noah himself, I accept your hallowed task and sing out with a battle cry worthy of your love and your wisdom. And that song is, ‘Winnipeg, get ready to paint the town Burgundy!’
