KIVI’s Paul Gerke in full Ron Burgundy mode

If you've been having trouble sitting still in anticipation of the Anchorman sequel, we have the sportscast for you by way of KIVI ABC 6 in Boise, Idaho. Sports director Paul Gerke paid tribute to Will Ferrell's iconic character on Halloween night by doing an entire segment as Ron Burgundy. Donning the requisite Burgundy blazer and an impressive 'stache, Gerke began the piece with an outcry of Boise's standing, or lack thereof, in Thursday's AP Top 25 college basketball poll. He then meandered into the territory of leather-bound books while discussing the Boise State football team's chances against Colorado State before ad-libbing the station's weather report as his fellow newscasters looked on in amazement. A lot of this was obviously planned for the Halloween broadcast, but some of his best moments were definitely improvised. Brick Tamland would have been especially proud of the weather commentary.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins traded points for most of Thursday night. Giovanni Bernard's explosive touchdown run in the 4th quarter tied the score at 17 before each team would make a field goal to knot the game at 20-20 and send the action into overtime. After a few stalled overtime drives by each offense, the game turned on a play that seemed like the equivalent of a horror movie for Cincy fans when Andy Dalton was sacked in the end zone for a safety. The walkoff safety gave the Dolphins a 22-20 win.

Lastly, if you weren't already excited about Derrick Rose's comeback, he gave you two more reasons with 5.7 seconds left in regulation Thursday against the New York Knicks. Down 81-80, the Chicago Bulls inbounded the ball and ran a play designed to get the former MVP the rock for a chance to win. He did just that, hitting a floater over two defenders for the game-winning score.
