E! Online lists seven things we learned from Ron Burgundy’s appearance

dan.willE! Online broke down the key lessons from Ron Burgundy’s appearance in the ManCave last week:

1. He only has one maroon blazer: When Dan asked Ron how many maroon blazers he has, the anchor confessed, “How many? I wish more than one. This thing reeks. I’ve been on the bus since Tuesday. I’m not lying, but that’s the beauty of a manmade fiber. You just stand it in the corner of a hotel room, rinse it off with a hose and you’re good to go.”

2. He considers Anchorman 2 to be a documentary.: When asked to describe the film, Ron said, “It’s a cautionary tale, yet it’s a story of redemption. It’s the second chapter of my life—the chronicling of my life…yes, that is a word. Chronicling…I wish there was a documentary every year coming out about me.”

3. He went to Harvard…junior college: When dishing on his college experiences, Ron admitted he had been enrolled at more than just one. “I went to Harvard…junior college in Waco, Texas…I was a Torero at the University of San Diego. Not San Diego State. Couldn’t get in there. USC. Couldn’t get in there. I didn’t finish college and I got right into the broadcasting game.”

4. His father is his idol: “I learned a lot from my father Claude Burgundy, growing up in Hagglesworth Iowa,” Ron said. “My father would do the news in the town bar. He’d sit behind a desk even though it wasn’t televised and just read the day’s events.”

5. He would take Dan Rather to a knife fight and Walter Cronkite to a party:  “If I could pick two people to have in a knife fight on my side, it would be Dan Rather and Morley Safer,” Ron continued. “If you’re gonna party, Cronkite was the best. Cronkite was an animal.”

6. That is his real hair: “Of course it’s my real hair,” Ron said. “I take pride in it. It’s basically the essence of who I am and without it I’d be nobody.”

7. He’s a legendary “cocksman”: “If you look up the word cocksman in Webster’s there’s a very small picture of me…tiny,” he quipped.
