As part of their 80's Night festivities on Wednesday, the New Orleans Hornets reached out to one-time basketball (movie) star Will Ferrell to introduce the visiting Chicago Bulls. He did so with typical Ferrell aplomb, providing interesting biographical data about each player. For instance, did you know Luol Deng has a pet dolphin and collects rare birds? Me either!

What a week of random appearances for Will Ferrell. First he had that brilliant Old Milwaukee Super Bowl ad that was curiously shown in only North Platte, Neb. And then here was in New Orleans Wednesday night giving the pre-game introductions for Bulls vs. Hornets in his trademark deadpan humor.

Is it really that easy...
