Ron Burgundy’s Interview With Peyton Manning On ESPN Is Pure Gold

“Ron Burgundy is everywhere, it’s like, OK I get it, you have a movie coming out but I probably won’t see it now because I’m tired of you and you’re annoying. Blah Blah Blah”  That quote is a combination of everything that I’m hearing from people, but you know what? I couldn’t disagree more.  I love it.

Ron Burgundy is a hard hitting journalist, a man after the truth, a man who is never afraid to ask the questions that nobody would dare ask. He doesn’t care what you think. All he cares about is reading the news.. and he’s a legend amongst men in this interview with Peyton, uncovering family trees like Houston Texans free safety Danieal Manning and 6’3″ 285 lbs Gloria Manning, answering questions about Peyton that we’ve all wondered time and again like “Do you ever yell things at the line of scrimmage that make no sense?”  This is the guy you want to grab a beer with, this is the guy that makes fun of your lack of facial hair, calls your sad attempt at a mustache “liquid dog crap mixed with cocaine”, then pats you on the back, calls you  “old friend” and knocks back some aged scotch.

Would kill to take a time machine back to the late seventies to spend a few wild nights with this guy at Merlin’s Bungalow in Burbank.
