Perhaps it's fitting a team that hasn't won the World Series in over a century received plenty of backlash for its new mascot. 

The Chicago Cubs — who haven't won a championship since 1908 — unveiled Clark the pantless mascot on Monday, but he didn't sit well with fans in the Windy City.

However, the CBC's Shane Foxman says he's not the worst mascot the professional sports world has ever seen.
