Ron Burgundy is scheduled to announce an actual sports event this weekend. It's in Canada and the sport is curling but the winners of this tournament will compete at the Sochi Winter Olympics. If curling weren't fascinating enough, add Ron Burgundy and Sunday night is going to be endlessly entertaining.
Ron will be working with Vic Rauter a veteran curling broadcaster so there will be someone there who knows what is happening on the ice in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Sunday night.
In a statement about Sunday, 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!"'
Make sure you pick up a pint of Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch for his big night!
No word yet on whether or not the curling trials will be broadcast in the US. We'll keep you posted.
