Cubs Clean Up In Negotiations For New Mascot

Chicago, IL -- The Chicago Cubs announced an endorcement deal with SC Johnson today to introduce a new club mascot, the Scrubby Bubble.

The Scrubby Bubble is a large soap bubble sporting a blue Cubs baseball cap. Scrubby will make several appearances at Wrigley Field periodically throughought the season to entertain fans and raise awareness about the importance of a clean bathroom.

Scrubby will have several catch phrases, such as:

  • “Keep your bathroom sparkling as much as your playoff hopes!”
  • “The scrubbing bubbles can clean away anything, even a curse!”

And, for the inevitable point in the season when all hope is gone:

  • “You don't want to have germs in your bathroom when your team is in the toilet!”

Scrubby's first appearance is tentatively scheduled for October 4, but experts agree that no one's likely to be at Wrigley Field then.

  1. Has he started a foundation for those with the same affliction?

    One Hot Cup of Coffey batted and still pitching? Is this good?

  2. Red Hot Mama says:

    Yeah, we could do a lot worse. If he gets into a pinch they’ll bring in Weathers, but Coffey ought to be OK. Knock on wood.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    ‘Sall good: if the Cubs want to use an out for each base they get, it’s fine by me.

  4. He’s certainly capable of some wicked pitches.

    Nice job, Reds. The Cubs will be all ready for us.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    Oh! I love spoiling the Cubs!

    They’re welcome to wallop your guys now. 😀

  6. So do we see you again the last series of the season?

  7. We’ve got some clinching to do. Doing it in Wrigley will be soooooo sweet.

  8. Red Hot Mama says:

    So, two weeks from tomorrow we’ll be doing this for real. It’s been a while.

    Here’s hoping the scheduling is better for next season.

  9. Red Hot Mama says:

    Holey samoley, did the ticker on ESPN just tell me the Cards fell to the Pirates?

  10. Yep. We lost. I wore my unlucky underwear today; I take full responsibility. Still won the series, though.

    This long break between series with the Reds was annoying.

  11. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well, I look forward to seeing you then. Good luck with the Scrubbies.

  12. The Reds will be the last team to visit this incarnation of Busch Stadium. There will be a lot of history on display. I will cry.
