Michael Vick to appear on “Oprah”

    Chicago seems to love Michael Vick. The Rev. Jesse Jackson stopped in on Vick during a regular-season game in Chicago. Now Vick is headed out to the Windy City once more — this time to chat with Oprah Winfrey.

    A spokeswoman has confirmed that the Eagles quarterback will appear Feb. 24 on the show. Fox 29’s Jennaphr Frederick reported Monday morning that Vick will tape the show in Chicago on Feb. 22.

    An Eagles spokesman previously confirmed that both Oprah and CNN’s Piers Morgan had reached out to the team to get Vick on their shows. Oprah won this round — but she’s Oprah. Was there ever any real doubt?
