Cubs unveil new mascot, and it's unbearable to many

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jan 13, 2014

In nearly 140 years of baseball, the Chicago Cubs have rarely had a mascot.

Until now.

The Chicago Cubs unveiled "Clark," a young bear cub named after the street legendary Wrigley Field is located.

The mascot was lampooned by many across the baseball Twitterverse.

The last Cubs mascot was reportedly 98 years ago - a shorter drought than their 106 years without a world championship.
