It looks like Will Ferrell has finally gotten the message. The whole sports comedy thing is so over. Talking to USA Today at a charity golf tournament, Ferrell pledged, “I will no longer attempt to do any sports movie, anymore. Any sports.”

“Yeah, I'm retired from sports-genre films. You know, I think I filled my quota," Ferrell said. Will hasn’t really done as many sports-genre comedies as you might think though. He’s currently up to a total of four. It’s just that he did all four in less than three years. Of those four only two, Talladega Nights and Blades of Glory, ever made much of a mark. Kicking & Screaming and Semi-Pro came and went from theaters with barely a whisper.

After the flop of Semi-Pro earlier this year, it makes sense that Ferrell would be ready to call it quits. Did you see Step Brothers? Hilarious, and sports free. More of that Will, please.
