I’m kind of a big deal: Will Ferrell to do player intros at Hornets/Bulls

Will Ferrell semi-pro

“I’m kinda a big deal. People know me.”

Will Ferrell — Ron Burgundy himself, Jackie Moon from “Semi Pro” — is a big deal, and he is in New Orleans filming a movie called “Dog Fight.” And he had agreed to do the player introductions for the Bulls visit to the Crescent City Wednesday, reports Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune on twitter.

Maybe what those intros needed was more cowbell.

Everybody panic! Oh my God, there’s a bear loose in the coliseum! There will be no refunds! Your refund will be escaping this deathtrap with your life! If you have a small child, use it as a shield! They love the tender meat! Cover your sodas! Dewie loves sugar!”

This has a lot of potential. Frankly, it may well be better than the game itself.

What will really make my night? If he announces Marco Belinelli then says, “A whale’s vagina.” (If you just asked why, go rent “Anchorman,” right now.)

    “Will Ferrell — Ron Burgundy himself, Jackie Moon from “Semi Pro” — is a big deal” –

    so is Will Ferrell doing this, Ron Burgundy, or Jackie Moon? This was written so weird. I didn’t see the movie so I really have no idea who the author is telling me who is showing up or I might be able to figure it out.
