WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Will Ferrell, wearing his trademark Ron Burgundy moustache and “Anchorman” outfit, helped open the Canadian Curling trials Sunday.
He even tried his luck on the ice and donned a kilt to the delight of fans. In speaking with reporters, he said the name Winnipeg was Latin for the small tundra bunny who lives in the hole on the hill.
As for curling jargon, Ferrell said he knows what “hurry hard” means, but uses it mostly when he’s stuck in traffic to get the driver in front to start moving.
Ferrell is promoting “Anchorman 2,” set for release before Christmas. He was part of the TSN coverage for the opening draw, with eight women’s teams vying for an Olympic berth.
