Remember: Tom Ricketts is the patient one.

As the chairman of the Cubs, Tom is the most recognizable face and voice of the four Ricketts siblings running the Cubs, and he's been at the forefront of the Wrigley Field renovation fiasco from Day 1. With the 2014 campaign set to kick off at Clark and Addison on Friday, there is still no end to the dispute between the Cubs and the rooftop owners and both sides appear to be running out of patience.

The whole ordeal has become quite the reality show, with twists and turns and drama from every angle. Which explains why Showtime would want to document the debate.

In the next episode of "60 Minutes Sports" set to run Wednesday night on Showtime, Armen Keteyian digs at the heart of the matter, interviewing the Ricketts as well as rooftop spokesperson Beth Murphy.

The Cubs have yet to break ground on the $500 million project as they wait for resolutions on several matters, including the Jumbotron slated for the left-field bleachers.
