Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts will be the next featured guest on CSN's "Inside Look presented by Cadillac" series, debuting Christmas Day at 4:30 p.m.
David Kaplan interviewed Ricketts in an exclusive one-on-one and discussed everything from his days of rooting for the Cubs as a fan to becoming the owner and chairman of the team.
Ricketts was also asked about the much-publicized "Theo Watch" and had some interesting insight in the team's attempt to keep Theo Epstein's visit to Chicago a secret.
Well, the funny part is that it was part of our Secret Agent Man-type stuff. He was sneaking in for the weekend, and we were very careful about who picked him up from the airport and all these things, and, of course, no plan survives that much secrecy," said Ricketts. "His wife wants an ice coffee and he hops out to get it and, of course, bumps into someone who recognizes him, so I guess we didnt have to be that secret because everybody found out anyway. Thats just the way it happens, just kind of a funny thing.
