Were you looking forward to Will Ferrell's, er, Ron Burgundy's appearance on ESPN's SportsCenter tonight? Of course you were. ESPN has been hyping it up for weeks now, and this clip of Ron Burgundy interviewing Peyton Manning provided us with a taste of what we could expect from Ron on SportsCenter. But unfortunately, ESPN just announced that Ron Burgundy will not be making an appearance on SportsCenter tonight because of the news conference that is going to be held later today concerning the Jameis Winston sexual assault allegations.

It makes sense for ESPN to cancel Ron Burgundy's performance. But we do hope that they reschedule him for sometime later this month. It seems silly to invest so much time and energy into his appearance and then cancel it altogether.
