Winnipeg stays classy: It may be all to promote his new movie but actor Will Ferrell delighted curling fans Sunday, and a few curlers as well, as he brought anchorman Ron Burgundy to the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials.

“I’m really enjoying Winnipeg, the Paris of Canada,” he said later, staying in character for the entire visit.

The 38-year-old Beckham, who recently won a league title in a fourth country with Paris Saint-Germain, has become a global superstar since starting his career at Manchester United.

This happened on Friday, when the Los Angeles Kings were still 20 minutes from closing out the St. Louis Blues in their Western Conference quarter-final. And this looks like it is one of two things: It is either two acquaintances trying to laugh off a piece of unfortunate news — or it is one of the most awkward sideline interviews in recent memory.
Ah yes, famous people come out in droves for playoff games — especially since ticket prices are off the wall. Last night’s example: Glee stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith (who is Canadian) took in the Canucks vs. Sharks game in Vancouver. ARE THEY BAD LUCK? (Photo: Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press)
