Baton Rouge residents, along with Tiger fans around the world, are saddened today to learn of the death of Mike V, LSU’s tiger mascot. While Mike was a living symbol of the spirit of LSU in its entirety, he was always strongly tied to LSU sports, and as the embodiment of the passion that LSU sports fan possess, presided over numerous national championships in baseball and one in football, not to mention some others I can’t recall at the moment. So long Mike V, I’ll miss visiting you in your habitat when I ride my bike by the PMAC. I’m having drinks at the Thirsty Tiger at 5:30 in Mike’s honor. Come join if you feel so inclined.
