New Sparky is not the only notable short-timer in Arizona sports history
On March 19, 2013, Arizona State put the kibosh on new Sparky, instead deciding to let the 'ASU community' design the new look.
The mascot's tenure lasted fewer than three weeks, though the reaction to him was, well, pretty negative (but very funny).
Anyway, new Sparky's short tenure in the Valley got us to thinking about other Valley sports figures who did not last very long, and we came up with a few.
- Tee shirt pokes fun at struggling Diamondbacks
- D-backs announcers get into the spirit of 'Star Wars Day'
- Padres' 105-year-old fan delivers windmill-style first pitch
- Anxious Red Sox ball girl interferes with fair ball in foul territory
- Fan storms field at Cubs-Diamondbacks game, tries to elude security
