Mark Cuban has never been one to keep his thoughts to himself.

The outspoken owner of the NBAa€™s Dallas Mavericks a€” who took his frank approach to the masses as a star on ABCa€™s Shark Tank a€” is certainly not afraid to speak his mind, even if it means dragging a countrya€™s national pastime through the mud.
