BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

Jonathan the Husky has seen more championships than Chicago Cubs fans.

According to a new ESPN commercial, however, Cubs fans have one up on the University of Connecticut mascot.

Fresh off the Cubs' dramatic World Series victory over the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night, ESPN posted the ad which features a SportsCenter employee erasing the number "108" from a white board that reads "years since the Cubs won the World Series."

He replaced the number with "0" before walking out of the room.

Then, in walks Jonathan with a cone collar around his neck.

He too erases a number from a white board. He replaces "35" with "0" on the board that read "days since last workplace accident."

Since being posted to Twitter, the video has been retweeted nearly 9,000 times and generated more than 11,000 likes.

On Facebook, it was shared more than 21,000 times and accumulated 38,000 "likes."

As for Jonathan's condition, UConn answered that question. 

"Don't worry UConn Nation! We promise Jonathan is okay. Just some fun for SportsCenter and the Chicago Cubs," the school posted on its Facebook page on Thursday morning.
