KRRO Sports Wrap - Tuesday, January 14

by Cade

The Tennessee Titans have a new head coach. They’ve hired San Diego offensive coordinator and former Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt, leaving three NFL teams still without a coach: Cleveland, Detroit and Minnesota. Bengals defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer has emerged as a favorite for the purple.

Yankee’s third-baseman Alex Rodriguez continues to dig himself a hole. He’s now suing the Player’s Union in an attempt to overturn his 162 game suspension this year.

For the first time in team history, the Chicago Cubs have a mascot. A pants-less mascot at that. A cub named “Clark.” Clark wears a jersey that barely covers his alleged sexless crotch. Along with goofy shoes that call attention to the fact that he’s not wearing pants. But, don’t worry – he’s a cartoon so it’s kid friendly. For those wondering, the mascot got its name from Clark and Addison, which is the intersection where Wrigley Field is located. The New York Yankees, L.A. Dodgers and L.A. Angels are the only teams in Major League Baseball without a mascot.

The Minnesota Wild look to stay hot when they host Ottawa at the Xcel Energy Center at 7:05 tonight.
