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.
- Diamondbacks' Kirk Gibson takes Ice Bucket Challenge, tweets for first time in months
- A star-studded reminder to pre-order Madden NFL 15
- Former ASU quarterback, congressional candidate Andrew Walter takes Ice Bucket Challenge
- Brawl mars Cowboys-Raiders joint practice
- Landon Donovan takes denial to a new level of awesome in Foot Locker ad
