Forget Ron Burgundy in the movie "Anchorman." San Diego now has a real life television reporter bringing embarrassment to the city.
USA Today reports Fox 5 San Diego's Ross Shimabuku slammed Danica Patrick last week stopping just short of calling her - well a word also meaning female dog.
Shimabuku started his sportscast last Monday calling Patrick a "pretty girl" who makes a lot of "money in sponsorships because of it. But what's not attractive is that she's sexy and she knows it."
The report then cut to a video of Patrick's appearance at NASCAR media day and her discussion of how the media always describe female athletes such as herself as "sexy."
"Is there any other word that you can use to describe me?" she asks, while a Fox headline underneath reads: "Danica Patrick. I'm sexy and I know it!"
Shimabuku returns on camera to say "Oh, I've got a few words… Starts with a 'B', and it's not 'beautiful."
The sports anchor closes by saying Patrick "always has a chip on her shoulder, trying to prove something."
No word yet on whether Shimabuku also plays Jazz Flute like Burgundy.
