Ron Burgundy Shows Up To LA Kings Game

Ron Burgundy Shows Up To LA Kings Game

Will Ferrell is known for his love of LA sports. He's a regular on the sideline of USC football games, owns part of Los Angeles Football Club and as for hockey, he loves LA Kings. But the limelight was stolen last night, by none other than Ron Burgundy.

The world's best anchorman joined FOX Sports West's Alex Faust and Jim Fox for the second half of Thursday's game between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks.

Obviously, news reporting and sports commentating require a bit of a different skill set, but being the adaptable and talented TV personality he is, the play by play was like second nature for Burgundy, as he slid straight into the role, with only a few slip ups, and a lot of 'knowledge' on the Sharks.

Of all the sports to commentate, hockey is so fast paced that it can get hectic - and all that keeping up makes for hungry work. Luckily, the team's mascot Bailey knew exactly what San Diego's finest news anchor would be craving.

As we know, Ron loves Mexican food, so of course he was presented with a delicious, but filling, burrito. And, to wash it down, he was given a nice glass of milk. Let's hope it wasn't a bad choice this time.

He also gives us an insight in to his pre-broadcast superstitions - little did we know he has a trusty pair of 'lucky underwear' that he wears for every broadcast he's done. After such a long, illustrious career though, he reveals he has to keep them together with 'staples and duct tape', as 'they're shredded'.

However, there might be more to Ron Burgundy's appearance than first meets the eye.

Since the release of the second of the franchise's films in 2013 - Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - fans have been hoping for another instalment of Ron Burgundy and his crew.

Back in 2016, when asked about the possibility of a third, one of the films' stars, Steve Carrell, told Good Morning Britain: "No, we never discussed it, but I heard in an interview [with director, Adam McKay] he mentioned that he might have an idea for Anchorman 3.

"But it might not happen for 10 or 15 years, so take a big deep breath."

Then at the end of last year, again he said he'd be more than up for another film - it looks like fans of Anchorman might just be in luck.
