The Dodgers are on the brink of elimination, facing the Cardinals in Game 5 in Los Angeles, but they brought out a secret weapon before the do-or-die game — and, no, the rally bear did not make a triumphant return.
Will Ferrell graced Dodger Stadium prior to first pitch and announced the Dodgers’ lineup like only Ron Burgundy could. Ferrell has been promoting “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” around sporting events on the West Coast the past few days, but after a couple of stops at USC, the actor finally made it to the big leagues.
Among a sea of gems in his reading of the lineup were Andre “I Know You Didn’t” Ethier, and “He Absolutely Loves Katy Perry” Juan Uribe. Ferrell saved the best superlative for last, however, as he introduced the man taking the mound, Zack Greinke, as “Today’s Winning Pitcher.”
Watch the videos below, and don’t act like you’re not impressed.

Will Ferrell is a well-known, and proud, USC alum.
The funnyman dressed in full drum major's gear on Monday and led the USC marching band as it played the Trojans' legendary fight song.

On Monday night, USC alum and noted Trojans super-fan Will Ferrell dressed the part for his alma mater, donning the Tommy Trojan costume and leading the USC band.
Ferrell was co-hosting an event along with fraternity brother and former classmate Craig Pollard, subtitled “A Will-Powered Friendship.” It was a benefit event on behalf of Cancer for College, a foundation that Pollard...
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, co-stars of Talladega Nights and Step Brothers and forever BFFEs, are rekindling the bromance for a new movie called Devil’s Night. The film will pit the two actors as estranged friends who once bonded over a shared love of the October hooligans’ holiday, Mischief Night.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the film, via The Wrap:
Facing elimination in Game 5 of the NLCS, the Los Angeles Dodgers called upon actor Will Ferrell to announce its starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals.
On a normal day, in a normal game, this move would seem like a terrific idea. However, given the fact that the Dodgers faced a must-win situation, and the mood was more nervous than jovial, it is puzzling at best why...
In what could have been the Dodgers final game of a magical 2013 season, the organization decided to keep things light and loose.
They recruited Frank the Tank, himself to announce the starting lineup for the Boys.
And wouldn't you know, it was hilarious.

Unfortunately, TBS did not broadcast the hilarity...
Before Game 5 of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers, comedian Will Ferrell read the starting lineup for the hometown Dodgers. He has done this before for the New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans and I think it was much funnier. This rendition was just flat out racist if you ask me. But, I’m sure a lot of people got a kick out of it.
Since TBS missed...
Beloved for his past impressions of (among others) George Bush, Robert Goulet and Janet Reno, comedian and USC alum Will Ferrell has recently added Trojans interim head coach Ed Orgeron to his repertoire.
While on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday to discuss USC’s firing of Lane Kiffin, Ferrell expressed hope that Orgeron would stick around Troy for a little longer “just...

Will Ferrell was handed a mic and announced the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Game 5 NLCS starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Will Ferrell announced the Los Angeles Dodgers lineup for their Game 5 matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, but unfortunately TBS cut away before the viewers could hear all of it. The obvious instant-class is “Andre ‘I Didn’t Know You’ Ethier.” It would have been fantastic to hear all of them.

On the Dan Patrick show, Will Ferrell came on and did a nice impersonation of Ed Orgeron after Lane Kiffin’s firing. Thank God the most popular Southern California fan has a sense of humor about the inability of Ed’s ability to speak. At least Orgeron made it in Sandra Bullocks’ “The Blind Side.” Ferrell talks about his George Bush impersonation and his love of USC and...
Zack Greinke is what Joe Kelly envisions being when he is fully evolved as a Major League pitcher: the whole package capable of winning games with his bat and glove as well as his strong right arm.

Will Ferrell had a pretty busy day yesterday, between announcing the Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup for Game 5 of the NCLS and jinxing the St. Louis Cardinals and ruining my day and appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, and of course as the foremost celebrity fan of the USC Trojans football program, the Anchorman: The Legend Continues star had to weigh in on the recent firing of Lane...

You have to give the Dodgers some credit. I truly thought they were done, and when Zack Greinke loaded the bases in the first inning of NLCS game five today, I was sure they were done. Then I had a prophetic feeling about things:
Cards score here, series ends today. Dodgers get out of this, they'll get it to Friday (momentum)

John Lackey pitched a heck of a game. No matter how unlikable the guy is to anyone outside of Boston for his body language, his past or his continued carping to the press about PED users, he beat Justin Verlander at his best. And Verlander was crazy good. Eight innings, four hits, ten strikeouts and one run. That one run though was enough for Lackey who completely shut down the...
