The Chicago Cubs -- owned by the Tribune Co., which also owns The Baltimore Sun, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and other news organizations -- are still in play. And assuming they go on the auction block, celebrity zillionaire Mark Cuban, who counts the Dallas Mavericks among his portfolio, is an interested party.

In keeping with Cuban's offbeat, populist image, he says that should he become the new proprietor of the Cubbies, he will do his game watching not from an owner's box but from the bleachers.

That Mark Cuban, he's just like you and me. Except for all that money, the sports franchises and his role on -- ta, da --- Dancing with the Stars. If you keep track of this stuff, Cuban and his partner survived their mambo here and apparently, there's another results show tonight off of last night's performances. Look, I could barely keep up with the Cowboys and Yankees and I refuse to TiVo dancing, cooking or marooned on desert island competition shows.
