The legendary anchorman will join TSN for its broadcast of the the Roar of the Rings curling event in Winnipeg Sunday. It is widely believed that his appearance will be amazing.
"Marked by the gods of broadcasting and placed into this shimmering green sphere like a golden egg in hay, chosen like an unclean jackal by Noah himself, I accept your hallowed task and sing out with a battle cry worthy of your love and your wisdom," said Burgundy in a press release. "And that song is, 'Winnipeg, get ready to paint the town Burgundy!'"
Burgundy announced last week that he is a big fan of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, sparking rumours that the news hero may move permanently from San Diego to Canada.
