A prospective juror in the Rod Blagojevich retrial had an unusual reason why she felt she had to be excused from serving on the jury, and it worked: The woman said she has tickets to see one of the last tapings of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," reports the Chicago Tribune.

The attorneys agreed with the unidentified woman, and the judge dismissed her, the story notes.

Blagojevich had a comment about the situation as he left the courthouse, saying that he envied the woman for not having to be at the trial and that he once considered giving Winfrey the U.S. Senate seat that he’s accused of trying to sell, the article notes.
