We Need More Will Ferrell in Pro Sports

Will Ferrell made a cameo appearance at the New Orleans Arena last night announcing the starting lineups for the Hornets-Bulls game. After watching this, can you honestly say that Will Ferrell shouldn't be called upon to do this every night?

This isn't Ferrell's first time combining sports and entertainment though. Over the past decade he's portrayed numerous athletes in films including:

and Ricky Bobby (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby)

He also made an appearance with the AAA Round Rock Express in 2010 as Billy Ray 'Rojo' Johnson

And I was at a game at Fenway in 2006 when he threw out the first pitch in a full Sox uniform a la Luis Tiant.

Bottom line, Will Ferrell makes sports better. He's like those Dairy Queen commercials. Good isn't good enough. We don't have rainbows, we have rainbows... ON FIRE. It's not just sports, it's sports... WITH WILL FERRELL!
