    Were you CY?

    Where you ever, or are you now, one of the CY's? Who wasn't a CY that wanted to be and why? Who never even wanted to be CY?

    This is a poll to break up the monotany of the political and religious threads. You know it's gotten kind of bad when I'm tired of seeing them.

    Man, I think it was the 2000 season but whoever was CY during basketball season had mad hops. I remember this dude dunking and stuff without assistance.

    Re: Were you CY?

    I wasn't a CY, and likely never will be. Mostly because of the time and travel demands that go along with it. I didn't realize that you had to be willing and able to travel to most/all Cyclone events, no matter the distance and sport/season. If I didn't have a college student's budget of nothing, maybe I could have been able to swing it. However, if they'd let alumni try out, I'd LOVE being CY as a part-time job once I start teaching.

    The only thing I know about dbronco is that he does dorkier things than I do (name board at CF tailgate for spring scrimmage), and that's saying quite a lot.

    He did at the spring game. Let's see if his past roommate can out him anymore.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Were you CY?

    I would gladly be a CY for spring and summer, but they require you to do it for the full academic year. That sucks. I was bummed when I found that out.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    clonesalltheway, do you have any stories about being CY? I'm sure we'd all like to hear some of them.

    Re: Were you CY?

    Is this like trying to guess who the "Bear" was on Beat the Bear? Was I the only geek that watched Zabel get ***** faced and try to do that show? I remember one year when Walden was the bear. LOL. Good times.
