    He may still have a few more years in office, but President Barack Obama is already eyeing his retirement plans.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Obama sat down with several studio executives during a Nov. 26 meeting and revealed what his dream job opportunity would be after 2016.

    "At least I know what I want to do when I retire…host ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 list," he said according to the magazine.

    Ironically, one of the people in attendance was none other than Disney's CEO, Robert Iger, who also heads up the 24-hour sports channels.

    "Everyone had a good giggle," sources shared.

    And in more SportsCenter news, a scheduled appearance by Will Ferrell (as Anchorman's Ron Burgundy), was canceled in light of a press conference that was held regarding football player Jameis Winston.

    The Florida State quarterback is currently under investigation for allegations that he sexually assaulted a former classmate.

    The unfortunate news for Burgundy fans was revealed via Twitter.

    "Ron Burgundy's scheduled Thurs. appearance on @SportsCenter has been cancelled in light of the potential implications of any news from the State Attorney's press conference in Fla.," ESPN's director of communications David Scott tweeted. "As of this time, there is no reschedule date for Ron Burgundy."

    But have no fear, promos for the film (ranging in news station pranks and college-naming ceremonies) have been full-throttle over the last several weeks.
