You Can’t Spell “Cuban” Without “Cub”; Also, Without “Ban”

The online version of Radar Magazine reports that billionaire Mark Cuban, whose Lloyd Christmas hair belies the fact that he is living most men’s fantasies, is going absolutely bonkers trying to buy the Cubs off the Tribune Company. Cuban is throwing around money like he’s Jim Hendry hooked up to an EKG machine on a Krispy Kreme high.

Mark Cuban

The face of a savior? Possibly the face of a serial killer? Time will tell.

The free-spending, wild-eyed, short-tempered Cuban could be a pleasant change of pace for Cubs fans used to the traditionally stingy ownership of the Cubs by the Tribune Company.

If Cuban ends up buying the Cubs, they might want to consider hiring Joe Mikulik as a bench coach.

The perfect storm caused by bringing together Lou Piniella, Cuban, and Mikulik could make for some interesting moments on the North Side.

    Do you think he will bring us a winner?

    If it happens (and now the rumors are flying that it WON’T happen), I think Cuban would instantly be the best owner in baseball. I’ll be dancing in the streets if it happens.

    I remember when they were dancing in the streets in Decatur, Illinois because Kevin Roberson hit a game winning homer against the Padres. That day was Randy Myers poster day and he blew a save and the fans threw their rolled up pictures of Randy at him as punishment.

    Hey, when does Kevin Roberson make the list? Woof.

    Remember when a fan rushed Randy Myers on the field, and Randy beat the shit out of him? Awesome.

    I liked Randy Myers. He represents one of the few times in history that the Cubs have paid big money for a free agent and it’s panned out. If only the team around him had been worth a shit.

    Randy was quality. I always picture him riding his bike down Waveland with that stupid hat on. The guy was batshit crazy.

    God those teams were shit.
