“Clark the Cub” debuts

Monday, Jan 13, 2014

* Via the RedEye, we have the new mascot for the Chicago Cubs…

* From the RedEye

“The Cubs are thrilled to welcome Clark as the team’s official mascot,” said Alison Miller, senior director of marketing. “Clark is a young, friendly Cub who can’t wait to interact with our other young Cubs fans. He’ll be a welcoming presence for families at Wrigley Field and an excellent ambassador for the team in the community.”

You can follow Clark on Twitter @ClarktheCub. He pulled a little bit of a Phil Jackson with his first tweet Monday.

“Still figryuing out how 2 tyype with these big pawz. Will gett lessons from @Cubs. Come back soon!!”

Your, um, thoughts?

    “See if he can pitch”

    Kid Gleason


  2. - Boone's is Back - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:38 pm:

    OH THE HUMANITY


  3. - 47th Ward - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:39 pm:

    Oh dear God.


  4. - Soccermom - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:40 pm:

    Does he look a little like Rod to anybody else?


  5. - Aldyth - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:40 pm:

    I hear Squeezy is looking for a gig.

    The Cubs are thrilled to welcome Clark as the team’s official mascot,” said Alison Miller. “While we won’t use him officially this year we will have to .. wait til next year.”


  7. - circular firing squad - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:41 pm:

    Looks a little league…but hey gotta start somewhere


  8. - Just The Way It Is One - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    Cute enough, and maybe it’s me, but just wonderin’, do Baby Bears REALLY have Blue eyes??


  9. - wordslinger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:43 pm:

    I thought this was a gag. It’s not.

    Release Squeezy from the Dome’s Chamber of Secrets — we need to get rid of this embarrassment right away.

    I’ve got a better idea to put fannies in seats — charge AAA prices until you put a major league team on the field.

  11. - PoolGuy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    the Yogi and Boo Boo of professional baseball. ugh


  12. - Stones - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    Ugh!

    Of course I wasn’t a fan of Ribbie & Rhubarb or Southpaw either.

    The NY Yankees have done pretty well over the years without a silly mascot.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:46 pm:

    Clark has buddies..,

    Sheffield, the Pony, for rich kids who get toys to run.

    Addison, the alligator, whose arms are so short, he won’t pay for a watchable Ball Club.

    And Waveland, the willobeast, who herds into the bleachers for the Beer and the Sun, using the watering hole as safety from the predator Ricketts.

    And I wonder why the Club looses 90+ games?

    I am a Dope!


  14. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:48 pm:

    Stupid auto-correct

    “Loses” and ” willdabeast”


  15. - LA05 - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:49 pm:

    You can see the sadness in his eyes. He has drawn the short straw among his animated small-bear friends.


  16. - Boone's is Back - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:49 pm:

    Was Clark clouted into Walter Prep too?


  17. - East Central Illinois - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:49 pm:

    Clark is gonna need a babysitter/bodyguard to get around Wrigleyville at night.


  18. - Big Muddy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:50 pm:

    Good grief. It’s bad enough to be a Cubs fan in Cardinal country but now this?


  19. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:50 pm:

    “O God, ease our suffering in this, our moment of great dispair. Yea, admit this good and decent mopppet into thine arms in the flock in thine heavenly area, up there. And Moab, he laid its down by the band of the Canaanites, and yea, though the Hindus speak of karma, I implore you: give him… give the Ricketts a break.”


  20. - haverford - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:50 pm:

    There’s another version where it’s holding a baseball like, “Heeeeeey, what’s this?” - which seems about right.


  21. - OneMan - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:52 pm:

    How long until you can buy a t-shirt that shows Clark returning some brew in front of the Cubbie Bear…


  22. - OneMan - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:53 pm:

    Looking off into the distance, realizing that help and hope are things he shall never really have…


  23. - Treefiddy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    They really captured the sadness of most Cub fans in his eyes.


  24. - G'Kar - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    Instead of learning how to type, maybe he can learn to play third and also how to take a pitch when he is at bat. THEN he can teach the rest of the team to take a pitch!


  25. - Fan - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    If the Cubs win the World Series with him then I’m all for it!


  26. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    Only the Cubs.


  27. - Wensicia - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    OMG, my White Sox friends and co-workers are going to be all over me with this, due to my continued loyalty to the Cubs and my last name happens to be Clark.


  28. - wordslinger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    Ronnie Woo-woo won’t like this interloper stepping on his gig.

    Clark better look out. Ronnie has a nice set of choppers now and will rip him to shreds.


  29. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:57 pm:

    - Boone ’s is Back -,

    Not quite, he was suppose to graduate from U. Of Chicago, but hung out at Wrigley all year till Mama Bear and Papa Bear flew in from Nebraska for a graduation that never happened and…

    This sounds eerily familiar…


  30. - LincolnLounger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:57 pm:

    LA05 made me laugh out loud!


  31. - David Ormsby - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:59 pm:

    Can he pitch?


  32. - too obvious - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:00 pm:

    Perfect. Sucks as much as the team. I love consistency.


  33. - Chicago Cynic - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:03 pm:

    Looks like the Squeazy illustrator got a new gig. Oh My Goodness….


  34. - Louis G. Atsaves - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    So new management was going to get rid of the old culture of Cub dumb! And they do this?

    Yeesh! I’ve always bragged about being a Cub fan, but this is way over the top even for the Cubs!


  35. - Amalia - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    well, at least this will stop the whining of Cubs fans about Southpaw and the predecessors….”you have that mascot, we don’t do that….”


  36. - Long Sufferer - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    I can’t stand the lack of substance that went from Wrigley, to Tribune and now Ricketts. We put up a statue of Harry Caray instead of Ernie Banks. think of that. Now we have a mascot that looks like something from a grade school.


  37. - Last Bull Moose - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:13 pm:

    Is it true that little bears have to hibernate in October?


  38. - Northsider - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:15 pm:

    G’Kar @ 3:55 p.m.: From your lips to G’Quon’s ears.

    As to the new mascot: http://youtu.be/SCbOmYJ7IU0


  39. - In_The_Middle - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:16 pm:

    A billy goat would prolly be more fitting.


  40. - 4 percent - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:17 pm:

    SAD…


  41. - Tommydanger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:21 pm:

    But did he clout his brother into the Parkay Prep school? You know its not nice to fool Mother Nature.


  42. - wordslinger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:23 pm:

    I hope the Cubs have the decency to put some pants on this animated bear.

    None of this Sugar Bear or Winnie the Pooh, with their sweaters and no pants.

    Heck, Yogi and Boo-boo just wear ties — nothing else!

    Thank of the children, Cubs!


  43. - Chicago Bars - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:25 pm:

    I appreciate the Cubs giving me a reason to post my favorite Cubs’ franchise folly from 2013 - a 100 page cease and desist letter demanding some neighborhood goofball cease “Unabated mascot activities”.

    http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/07/cubs-mascot-billycub-billy-cub-mascot-activities/

    The people shelling out $40 and way, way, up for decent seats to not very decent baseball in 2014 will no doubt be overjoyed to have that thing bouncing around all game long.


  44. - 47th Ward - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:31 pm:

    Well, they had to put something on that giant jumbotron between innings, but I wasn’t expecting this.


  45. - Joe Bidenopolous - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    Wow…I thought this was a gag too.

    I just hope he doesn’t get a sister named Addison, all dressed up in pink Cubs gear. There are already too many of those toddling around the city


  46. - Darienite - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:35 pm:

    Will “Nuts on Clark” need to change their name?


  47. - Norseman - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:45 pm:

    Clark, let me know when the Cubs are in the World Series. Otherwise, don’t bother me. I’ve been a disappointed Cub fan far too long.


  48. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:49 pm:

    Really they need a mascot? Isn’t every Cub a mascot already?


  49. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:49 pm:

    At least South Paw knows how to wear a baseball hat.


  50. - BW - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 4:54 pm:

    Will this be another misadventure like the family of Clark W. Griswald?


  51. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 5:10 pm:

    It looks like another lost century for the Cubbies.


  52. - Leatherneck - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 5:22 pm:

    He’s no Fredbird.


  53. - Century Club - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 5:34 pm:

    Looks like a play to get families to fill the empty seats now that Wrigley’s not an utomatic sell out. Not sure how that will work with the sky high ticket prices.

    Or, trying to dethrone the ’80s Sox uniforms as worst Chicago baseball design mistake ever?


  54. - Keyser Soze - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 5:35 pm:

    This is a “Heckler” joke, right?


  55. - Judgment Day (Road Trip) - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 5:49 pm:

    No worries. In a couple of weeks, the ‘newbie’ will become the officially designated mascot of the team bus for the (a) Daytona Cubs, or the (b) Iowa Cubs

    Wait for it.


  56. - Siriusly - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 6:00 pm:

    Another CapitolFax intern moves on to fame and fortune!


  57. - Oh, Come On - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 7:58 pm:

    The Chicago Tribune runs an editorial on the corruption, fraud, and nepotism at Chicago State University and Capitol Fax (which routinely follows activities at SIU and U of I) would rather talk about a cartoon mascot? Sheesh… Doesn’t Crony State University merit attention too?


  58. - foster brooks - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 8:16 pm:

    and there’s john Cusack


  59. - OMG - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 8:27 pm:

    Saturday morning cartoon characters are better drawn than Clark.


  60. - Joe Schmoe - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 9:26 pm:

    Looks like he belongs on the front door of Chuck E. Cheese.


  61. - Howard - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 10:20 pm:

    I can’t stand it when I see a youny person with the hat turned backwards. This is a sign of a bad attitude and another losing season. The management is somewhat like Quinn though. They don’t care if their record stinks, just so they get reelected.


  62. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 10:28 pm:

    But can he sing Take Me Out to the Ball Game well? Isn’t that all that matters at Wrigley?


  63. - wordslinger - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 10:58 pm:

    Clark is another buffer for Theo.

    He has a manager, a director of baseball operations, two assistant GMs, and a GM. And now Clark.

    That’s way better than Andy MacPhail had when he snoozed through his Cubs management to nowhere.

    Don’t be fooled. It’s all on Theo.

    He inherited a very good Red Sox team and added some of the best free agent juicers of all time to win his titles.

    He’s never won before on his five-year plan of suck until we don’t. When you’re drawing nearly 3 million a year at top-shelf prices.


  64. - Neglected stepchild - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 11:33 pm:

    Another loser.


  65. - downstate commissioner - Tuesday, Jan 14, 14 @ 9:35 am:

    He’ll be wiping Cardinal whitewash out of his eyes, since his cap is on backwards….


  66. - charles in charge - Tuesday, Jan 14, 14 @ 10:14 am:

    Adding a new character is often a desperate attempt to boost low ratings. I’m told that Poochie–I mean, “Clark”–is still in beta-testing and they are considering rastafying him by 10% to make him more “in-your-face.”

    Seriously, only Crane Kenney and the other geniuses in the Cubs’ management would think that THIS is what fans meant when they said they wanted Wrigley Field to be more “family-friendly.”
