Ron Burgundy to call Canadian curling Olympic trial

By Evan Hilbert |

As if people needed a reason to watch curling, Canada's TSN announced Sunday that Ron Burgundy would join the network's coverage of the opening day of Tim Horton's Roar of the Rings next Sunday. The week-long event will determine Canada's Olympic curling team.

Burgundy, who is not a real person but rather a movie character played by actor Will Ferrell, will join Vic Rauter in Winnipeg for the event.

"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," Burgundy said in a press release. "And that song is, 'Winnipeg, get ready to paint the town Burgundy!'"

If you were wondering why this is happening, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens in theatres Dec. 20.
