Almost lost in the neverending rush of viral and mainstream marketing for Anchorman: The Legend Continues – as if we’re not going to see this movie – was this appearance by David Koechner on “Colin Cowherd’s New Football Show” this past Sunday. Koechner stopped by in character as the sports anchor Champ Kind, and he delivered his trademark catchphrase “WHAMMY!” with some of the college football season’s best highlights.
Most importantly, he offered up UCF freshman running back William Stanback’s trucking of Rutgers freshman Anthony Cioffi, which is my favorite play of the year, mainly because I barely remember any of the college football I’ve watched this season.
What’s amazing is that for as much of a cartoon as Champ Kind is, he’s still not nearly as ridiculous as Cowherd. That intro music is the most “cookie cutter sports talk show” music that has ever been recorded.
