When Sark leads his team into Tiger Stadium Saturday night he doesn't want them freaked out by the environment.
Yes, from time to time LSU has been known to place their Tiger "Mike VI" next to the opposing team; but hey, what's a little fun amongst friends right? And, I mean who would be intimidated by a 500 pound Bengal Tiger right next to them?
So, what did Sark do? Yep, he had a live Tiger brought to practice today (this one only weighed about 300 pounds).
If you've never been, Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night is a magical environment. Put it on the list and get there one day.
Update>Here's video of the Tiger at UW's practice today compliments of Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Note to UW guys, if you put your hands near Mike's cage (like the guy does in this video), you'll lose your hand.
