Now all we need is to photoshop Clark (and why is it Clark, btw??) where the black goat is and we'll be all set.

Clark? CLARK? Who the fark names their mascot "Clark"? WTF, does he tear off his shirt during the seventh inning stretch and reveal himself to be Supercub?

Too bad those are mutually exclusive options.

I'm going with they probably named it after Clark Street, as in Clark and Addison.  Either way, this reeks of that shiatstain Crane Kenney, the last remaining embarrassment from the Tribune ownership days.  Got rid of Piniella, got rid of Jim Hendry, but this asshat remains.  Fark you Crane Kenney.

How cute! They named the mascot Steve Bartman.

Then you're just a bandwagon Cubs fan.
Real Cubs fans know that it can only get worse for as long as you are alive.

I live in Seattle and I would feel bad for you, except I went to the game here last year and your douchebaggy fan base makes Johnny Comelately Red Sox fratboys look good.
 
2014-01-13 09:30:05 PM  
I thought the Cub's mascot was Bartman.

I think a more appropriate mascot might be the Phoenix, arising from the ashes of yet another disasterous season, only to burn and crash at the end of the season.

Won't do anything to change the fortunes of the club through the next century but it will be the most astounding mascot EVAR!

Let me speak for the majority of Cubs fans when I post this:

No arguments from me. I don't go to Wrigley anymore for the same reason. The fan base seemed to get especially ugly after that '03 season.

It is seriously hard to be a Cubs fan these days.

My God, the idea that there is a collection of living, breathing humanoids playing the part of Cub Nation is a scary, scary thought.

That's the thing. There are always a lot of away fans here, and Seattle being Seattle we accept that. Believe it or not, Yankees fans are probably the best behaved and most knowledgeable. But that Cubs crowd was just stupid, drunk, and obnoxious.

When I still lived home in Chicago, the few times I forgot there was a home game and I drove through Wrigleyville, the best way I can describe it is like driving through a sea of frat zombies and their "women".

I should have ran over a few of them.

Came for it. Leaving satisfied. Good hunch!

But, I'm surprised they adopted a mascot after so long. In fact, "If I woke up tomorrow morning with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be any more surprised than I am right now."

I did some checking to find out if the Cubs can force me to give a damn about their mascot, and it turns out they can't, so I'm not going to.

The drawing of him looks so sad. Being a Cubs mascot I suppose that's appropriate, though.
