There’s quite a world of difference between porn star Ron Jeremy (seen at left above in 2009) and Will Ferrell’s Anchorman character Ron Burgundy (seen at right above) but ESPN NCAA basketball analyst Andy Kennedy mixed up the two Tuesday night. Kennedy was calling the Auburn at Arkansas men’s basketball game with play-by-play voice Tom Hart, and he saw someone in the crowd holding up a printout of Burgundy’s head and described it as “Ron Jeremy,” leading to Hart howling with laughter:

Kennedy does bounce back well with “That’s a whole ‘nother channel. Indeed it would be. And while ESPN+ does offer some pay-per-view events, we don’t think they’re of that nature.
