Cubs mascot strikes fear into opponents

The Chicago Cubs finally have a mascot.  This is the first Cubs mascot since 1916. http://keepingscore.blogs.time.com/2014/01/13/chicago-cubs-unveil-new-mascot/  As teams move to more politically correct symbols and mascots, it appears the Cubs have found a good balance.  A mascot that is fun and also appealing to younger fans.  I haven't heard if any groups are opposed to this mascot yet but I'm sure the Cubs brass did enough studies and focus groups to see if "Clark" offends any groups or animals.   The Cubs organization appears to be doing a lot work off the field for what they hope will eventually be a Cubs renaissance on the field but according to some preseason reports the Cubs are picked to finish last in the National League's Central Division.
