Wacky billionaire Mark Cuban denied reports which surfaced Wednesday that he is about to make a bid on the Cubs. Cuban, speaking into a microphone powered by Square D, part of the power at Wrigley Field, said that he had “no idea where [the reporters] got their info.”
Mark Cuban is shocked that rumors swirled yesterday about him making a bid to purchase the Chicago Cubs.
“Bloggers these days,” Cuban continued, pausing long enough to whistle the opening bars of Van Halen’s “Jump.” “They’ll pretty much write about any rumor that gets thrown out there.”
“I honestly don’t know why anyone would start such a rumor,” Cuban mused as he sipped an Old Style out of a paper beer cup. “It would be interesting to trace back and find out where rumors like this get started.”
Cuban left the interview early, claiming that he schedules no meetings during his afternoons from 1:20 to 4:30.
