Before the doors opened and the guest of honour arrived, one curling fan at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings was already painting the town burgundy.

Decked out in a burgundy wig and dyed beard, Hans Madsen of Yorkton, Sask. said he was saluting Ron Burgundy, the oafish newscaster played by comedic actor Will Ferrell in the movie Anchorman. Ferrell is calling an end in character at this afternoon's opening draw.

Madsen said his kids told him who Ron Burgundy is.

"I don't own a TV — my kids said 'you gotta see this guy'." The fun-loving fan who follows women's curling events all over the world has 28 wigs he wears to the events and today chose burgundy.

The opening ceremonies began at 11 a.m.
