The Chicago Cubs unveiled the first official mascot in franchise history on Monday
Poochie Clark the Cub. The Cubs, in their official release, said Clark won’t be dancing on the dugout or shooting hot dogs into the stands. Instead he’ll be welcoming fans as they enter Wrigley Field and (presumably) appear at other charitable team functions.The club described Clark on their site as … “unbearably cute.”
Gauging by the reaction on Twitter, Clark the Cub is going to have to shake A LOT of hands to win over the public:
Finally, a reason for Pierre the Pelican: KILL CLARK THE CUB.—

Clark the Cub: a mascot that is somehow worse than Wally the Green Monster.—

Clark the Cub looks awfully happy to be representing more than a century of sadness.—

Poor Clark, the little guy never had a chance.
Maybe he’ll address all the haters on his own official Twitter account.
Well … probably not.
