The Ron Burgundy blitz for Anchorman 2 has only just begun.  After apperances in North Dakota and Candaian curling, the promotional campaign hits high gear on Thursday.  In the morning, Burgundy (yes, I know I'm talking about a fictional character portrayed by Will Ferrell, but we're going all in with the character here) will appear on The Dan Patrick Show as a co-host.  Then in the evening, Burgundy as well as co-worker Champ Kind (another fictional character) will appear on SportsCenter.

As a teaser for Burgundy's SportsCenter appearance, ESPN released this teaser video for the anchorman's interview with Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning…

Mildly amusing, but I've seen much better from both Burgundy and Manning as far as their comedic exploits are concerned.  Perhaps a better interview would have been with Carolina QB Cam Newton given the natural sex panther tie-in.

UPDATE: Burgundy's SportsCenter appearance has been canceled. Find out why here.
