Comcast Sports accidentally airs NSFW image of Chicago Cubs’ new mascot

clarkcubsmascot-590x331There’s plenty of history to the Chicago Cubs organization and despite not having won a World Series in more than 100 years there is still a passionate fan base. That same fan base has been rather harsh towards their team following the introduction on Monday (more per our guys at Cubbies Crib) of ‘Clark’, the team’s first modern day mascot – they did have an actual bear as a mascot, at one point in time – in an effort to promote a more family friendly atmosphere at Wrigley Field.

At first glance, the effort doesn’t appear to have worked.

Further magnifying the situation for the Cubs from bad to worse, the creative minds at Deadspin challenged their readers to “do something horrible to the Cubs’ new, perverted mascot”. Some of the submissions are, well, let’s just say interesting. But the story gets better.

Deadspin themselves worked up an initial example of how to sully the “perverted furry” that they call Clark the Bear and the image wound on on the air at Comcast Sportsnet Mid Atlantic.
