Here is the Clemson Tiger waterskiing

The life of a college football mascot isn’t an easy gig. There are all those pushups to do after your team scores a touchdown, and then, Lee Corso is always trying to steal your head for a stunt on his TV show.

The Tiger, Clemson’s anthropomorphic mascot, faces the same challenges are the rest of his CFB pals.  He’s not the first mascot to do pushups in honor of a Tiger touchdown – the Tiger has been doing pushups since 1978 and since this is the internet, of course there are mascot stats of the most Tiger pushups by quarter, half and game. Much respect to the 1981 Tiger who did 565 pushups in one game!

The Tiger also runs on of the internet more entertaining Twitter accounts @TheTiger_CU, even if you don’t bleed Orange and Purple, you will still get a kick out of his life 140 characters at a time.

Also, The Tiger is known to do this before the start of a football game:

Clemson is hosting Louisville in what should be a rather entertaining football game. Since this is arguably the biggest game of Week 5, the GameDay crew will be on location from Clemson.

The Tiger hopes the GameDay crew has a little bit of downtime, because he invited them to go wakeboarding on Lake Keowee.
