Tonight on Ebert. He said he could relate to Jimmy Fallon's Red Sawx loving fan as a "diehard White Sox fan whose team hasn't been to the World Series in my lifetime."

For all the crap we give the media, we're lucky to have two of the best columnists in this town squarely in our camp; Roeper and John Kass of the Trib.

ebert is from the south side is he not? I know in some reviews he has mentioned going to wrigley, but has never (as far as i know) said anything about being a cubs fan.

anyone know what his affiliation is?

Roeper has made his allegiance to the Sox well known for years.

I've read in an interview that Ebert has said he likes both Chicago baseball teams and wants both to do well. I'm not sure if he just isn't a baseball fan or he doesn't want to offend potential readers. Take it for what its worth but when the Flubs enlisted Ebert to sing the 7th inning stretch, he refused to say "root root root for the Cubbies" and instead chose to say "root root root for the home team".

It would have been classic if he said "root root root for the WHITE SOX!"

I think Roeper does a good job on the show.

Why are some attacking a fellow Sox fan?
