CHICAGO — Here's what we're reading while waiting for the Cubs playoff game to begin.

Anthony Rizzo Played The Piano Like He Plays Our Heartstrings: If you're not already feeling all heart-eye-emoji over the Cubs, reporter Ariel Cheung is reading a story in The New Yorker that is sure to win you over. Told by former teammate Adrian Cardenas, it recounts the first baseman's rise to the major leagues. As with baseball, Rizzo displayed unwavering determination during another task: learning how to play a song on the piano for his girlfriend, who was coming to visit while he was playing for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs.

Cardenas said "his instincts were good," he was determined and eventually he "managed to turn out something on the low end of decent."

As the Cubs return to Chicago today, it's nice to have another reason to cheer them on.

Billionaires, They're Not Like the Rest of Us: In case you need proof, check out this piece from Forbes.com on "The World's Most Expensive Billionaire Homes." Topping the list is a billion-dollar, 27-story, 400,000-square-foot skyscraper in Mumbai, owned by Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in India. The "house" boasts three helicopter pads, for all those occasions when one just won't do. No Chicago properties made the cut, but a couple of folks with ties to the Windy City did. Hedge fund tycoon Ken Griffin plunked down $130 million for his Palm Beach estate and Oprah Winfrey's California digs set the talk show queen back $88 million. Granted, these swank homes come complete with some unusual amenities, like dog spas, their own power plants, herds of cattle and, our personal favorite, "a flower-cutting hall with professional florist fridge."

Immediate Health Care Clinics Are Fastest Growing Segment of Healthcare:  Urgent care clinics are popping up all over the country in former video stores, restaurants, convenience stores, car washes, day care centers and electronics shops at a "dizzying rate" and are the fastest growing segment of healthcare, the Tribune reports. In Wicker Park, MedSpring, 1520 N. Damen Ave. and Physicians Immediate Care, 1702 N. Milwaukee Ave., are providing an alternative to going to a traditional doctor for annual physicals and non-life threatening injuries such as sprained ankles. Reporter Alisa Hauser, though, is wondering if the centers cost more than going to a doctor and how certain procedures are billed.

P.J. Rose's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Extravaganza: Derrick Rose might be in hot water with Bulls' fans over his media day comments about ensuring his family's "financial stable," but pictures of the Chicago-born point guard and his limelight stealing little man dressed in matching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle gear for P.J.'s third birthday will make your heart swoon. C'mon, just look at P.J.'s face?
