Is this a joke?
Will Ferrell's doing a media circuit as Ron Burgundy, so... yes and no, depending on what you're referring to.


Ah ok, makes sense now, I thought by the sounds of the TSN article that he was joining them on a permanent position.

Onrait and O'Toole were great.  For those of you who enjoyed them, I recommend checking out their podcasts.

Onrait and O'Toole were great in the beginning. By the end it became less and less about the scores of games and more and more about how ridiculously unfunny they could be.

Maybe it's just me, but I really don't find Will Ferrell all that funny.  And to me, taking a character from a movie and having him just say ridiculous stuff on other mediums is a pretty dumb gimmick.

I agree completely. Ferrell hasn't been funny in years.

Disagree, but to each their own.

If all I wanted was to find out the scores of the games I would just check their website.

Funny is obviously a subjective thing but he does at least seem committed to being weird. From the funny or die stuff to recording beer ads that only play in small markets in Iowa at the very least he's not just sitting back and cashing big checks to make sequels.

You know, except now.

Last time I checked, Sportscenter is a sports newscast, not the Jay and Dan comedy hour. I'm fine with a few cracks here and there, but to them it was more stand-up than about the sports.

It's whatever TSN decides it is actually.

EDIT: And the highlights were still exactly the same.  Unless you watch Sportscentre for the bland recantation of goals, assists, win by a faceless droid.

It's not really a newscast though, it's a highlight show and if the only two available tones are boring or funny I'd go funny.

It's still an entertainment product, and they made it more entertaining.
