While everyone from Mike and Mike to The Dan Patrick Show to PTI were in the Halloween spirit, KIVI sports director Paul Gerke won the day yesterday in Boise, Idaho. He not only dressed up like Anchorman Ron Burgundy, but did an entire 8 minute sportscast in character, never once wavering and dropping some classic movie lines along the way. He even went out into the field as Burgundy in the full ensemble...
It's been a great year for funny local sportscasts, this just raises the bar further.
My favorite part is when he says Let's take a look at our FORD Skycam brought to you by the all new DODGE Durango.
Greg Papa did this also on CSN Bay Area, although he wasn't as committed to character. This is solid.
Gerke does Burgundy better than either Josh Elliot (GMA's Good Morning America) or Doug Gottlieb (CBSSN's Lead Off). And yes, both dressed as him.
