OK, one more Roger Ebert story. This one's from author and screenwriter Alan Zweibel, telling the story in the New Yorker of running into Ebert years after the critic gave a particularly scathing review to his film North. UPDATE: Wait, this morning Deadspin posted about Ebert's sports writing early in his career.
