On the third day of Christmas, Will Ferrell gave to me, some sports calls and donuts on the street! The countdown to the much anticipated debut of Anchorman: The Legend Continues is getting closer, and it seems that all of pop-culture is overflowing with the antics of San Diego’s finest news team.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues won’t be released in theaters until December 18th (16th in some places), so until then, forget The 12 Days Of Christmas – We’re staying classy for The 12 Days of Burgundy!
Day 3 – “Stat Of The Day, Stat Of The Day, Doo Bah Doo Bah Doo.”
KVWN Channel 4 News legendary anchor Ron Burgundy made a special appearance as a guest-host for NBC Sports Network’s The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday. Ron came to town (Milford, CT) in a manner not unlike Santa, except instead of presents, he brought with him Dunkin’ Donuts and a 40, catching the attention of a couple of townies who immediately posted pictures of the surprising occasion. During his two hours with Dan Patrick, Ron decided to show how he believed the “Stat Of The Day” theme song should sound, recreate some historic sports calls, give NFL Network’s Rich Eisen some advice, and ask the new USC head football coach, Steve Sarkisian, some difficult questions. Needless to say, Burgundy had everyone on the show and listening clutching their sides with his antics.
Perhaps it’s just the spirit of the season, or maybe we’re also falling prey to Burgundy’s mysterious mind-control, but somehow Ron Burgundy has invaded The Laugh Button too. Who can blame us? I mean, 60% of the time, Ron’s techniques as a car salesman work, every time! Not to mention how his interview with Eminem at the EMAs put us all into a glass case of emotion! His newscast on the Yahoo! Search Report of 2013 was so wise, like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair. And we can’t forget about Brick Tamland, who’s audition got us all to love lamp.
But if you still find yourself wondering why it seems the whole world is seeing burgundy, you can check out Ron’s legendary new book, Let Me Off At The Top!. But before you finally get away from the rock you live under to come and see how good Ron looks, just remember his number 1 tip for survival in the real world: Milk is a bad choice.
There’s still 9 Days Of Burgundy to go, so until tomorrow: You stay classy, Planet Earth.
