Will Ferrell Announces Starting Lineups At Hornets-Bulls Game, Adds Ridiculous Trivia (VIDEO)
He's played plenty of ridiculous sports figures in his movies, but after Wednesday night's Hornets-Bulls game in New Orleans, Will Ferrell can now add real-life NBA announcer to his resume.
Ferrell offered his services introducing the starting lineups of both teams before the game, and it went about as well as you could expect. See, Ferrell is so busy working on his new political comedy "Dog Fight" with Zach Galifianakis that he just didn't have the time to research every basketball player's alma mater, hobbies and highlights. So instead, he just made some stuff.
"He doesn't speak a lick of English" and "After retirement he wants to be rodeo clown" are just a couple of the outlandish "facts" the "Blades Of Glory" star rattles off in the clip above. Watch him introduce the Hornets' starting five in his signature bravado there and click here to watch him do his full announcement.
