i knew there had to be a reason why i always preferred siskel

Apparently, The Insider (because that's a reliable news source) has revealed that Oprah Winfrey went on a date with Roger Ebert in the mid-1980s.

How's that for a sentence you never thought you'd ever hear in your lifetime?

But before you start heaving up everything you've eaten for the last month, rest assured that the relationship was only one date long.

HOWEVER, Ebert is the one who convinced Oprah to take her talk show to syndication...I guess because he thought she wouldn't last on ABC stacked up against such giants as "The Price is Right". (You know Bob Barker has his own Plinko Mafia that would've come after her.)

So if you're ever wondering who to blame for all of those "Oprah Gives Away More Crap You Could Never Afford To Buy" and "Oprah Gained/Lost Another 20 Pounds For The Fifth Time This Month" specials...blame Roger Ebert.
