Missing Roger Ebert

siskel + ebert

What a loss!

I was so sorry to learn that Roger Ebert has died — we were all such huge, geeky fans of his + Gene’s, back in the Siskel + Ebert days.

I remember their going on an early Letterman show, + he had them shooting baskets.  Good times!

Do you remember when their show opened to a scene of them stepping on + off the EL train in Chicago?

Since then, I’ve read + enjoyed several of Roger’s movie review books + given said-same as gifts.

Anyway, this has been big news in Chicago, as all my entertainment guys knew + admired Roger Ebert.

I didn’t get to read his Chicago Sun-Times movie reviews, sadly, because we get the other paper in Chicago — the Tribune.

However, I did head to the Rotten Tomatoes website + sought out Roger’s review of whatever movie we might go see.  Today there are some very moving tributes on the website, in honor of him:
