    Cubs introduce new mascot. Still haven't won a World Series since 1908...

    http://espn.go.com/chicago/mlb/story...modern-history

    The Chicago Cubs listened to their fans and delivered something the franchise has lacked for most of its 138-year history. No, not a World Series championship, their previous being in 1908.

    On Monday, the Cubs announced the first official mascot in their modern history -- Clark, a "young, friendly Cub" who wears a baseball cap backward and will greet fans as they enter Wrigley Field.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'm not sure if this is a character from a cheaply made Hanna Barbera cartoon, or a spoof of a Hanna Barbera cartoon on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

    There is a great, extremely NSFW post about him on Deadspin now. It's great.

    Clark starts the season already pantsed, making him the perfect Cubs mascot.

    This one should be safe for work.

    I feel we should rasta-fy him by 10 percent or so.

    I don't see how we can make fun of the Cubs for having a mascot when the Reds have 4. Besides, there are so many other things about them to make fun of.
