Love Letters From Pronk: Clark the Cub
Love Letters From Pronk is an ongoing series where Pronk shares his love for somebody connected to the Cubs. Sometimes funny, sometimes weird, Pronk likes to make 100% sure people know that they are loved, and best expresses that through gushing letters. Today's pick: Cubs mascot Clark the Cub
Clark has been a fixture of the Cubs since 2014. Originally mocked for having no pants, he's helped the Cubs make a new youth outreach to younger fans. He's present at all games and events, adding a fun twist to things. He has his own kids club, helping develop new fans. Since he's become a Cub, the team has a .560 winning percentage. So let's give him some credit eh? Perhaps one day he will find his pants. Then he'll belong with the all time greats. (Counterpoint: Clark should never have pants. The end.--Staci)
Oh wait, he's already there.
I'm happy to have you as a part of the Cubs family. Your giant smile is infectious and rubs off on so many. You have your critics, and they all have one thing in common: they are just jealous of you.
My favorite Clark memory was at the 2020 Cubs Convention. You were a part of the kids press conference section, answering questions with Rizzo, Baez and Schwarber. While you didn't speak, you would answer using a dry erase board. Your answers were very funny, and had the entire auditorium in laughter.
I am glad that you are a part of the Cubs family. Mascots help give their teams a fun edge and are a great extra perk at the ballpark. Since you came on board, you've helped make the Cubs just that much more fun. Keep it up!
I look forward to seeing you soon!
PS. Hi Clark! It's always fun to see you at Wrigley! Thanks for coming over and wishing my sis a happy birthday in 2015! And it was awesome seeing your World Series ring in 2017! xo Tina
