    Mike V, LSU’s live bengal Tiger mascot, passed away this morning at the age of 19.

    Oh God, does this mean all those whackos who spent months and months paying homage to and crying about the death of Barbaro are going to crawl out of the woodwork again?

    Hey, I was just trying to be light and funny here.
    I didn't know zagoshe was going to continue his Olympic pursuit as a human cliche.

    The university had been expecting this for some time, I think.

    I read somewhere they had placed Mike V in semi-retirement, and were only going to use him ceremoniously until he passed. I think it also said he'd outlived normal captive tigers, already.

    Bill - Are you standing outside holding a lighter and crying? How soon before you start sobbing into the television news cameras that Mike V was a hero and transcended sports......

    From the thread title, I thought there was going to be some NSFW goodness on this thread. Carry on.
