    That Dude in Cyclone Alley

    Every time I watch our MBB games on TV, I get a kick out of seeing that dude in Cyclone Alley who wears that big, WWF-type belt slung over his shoulder.

    He was a Cyclone Alley member last year and he's easy to recognize: he always has his 'war paint' on and he's kinda big, barrel-chested, and looks like he wears a Cardinal & Gold Toga, but it's that huge belt slung over his shoulder that makes him stand out.

    What is that thing; seriously, it looks like he won the International Boxing Federation, or some Ultimate Fighting Championship Belt.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Opps - sorry if it's an old topic. I've been around a while, just not on board a lot due to my heavy travel schedule. Nonetheless; that Dude in CA is kool.

    PS: Don't interrupt his Wii game; just tell him his Cyclone Alley efforts are infamous!

    Re: That Dude in Cyclone Alley

    As for the belt, I was bored about...two years ago (Fall 2005) during Dead Week. The Iowa Bball game was coming up towards Friday, I think, so I wanted to do something for it. We had a commanding 7-2 lead in the Cy-Hawk series, so a win in MBB would have just about clinched it for us (I figured at least one win in Gymnastics was a lock)

    So I made something to celebrate that we were going to officially have a Cyclone State. (The added bonus was that we had already beat Drake and UNI, so we were ACTUALLY going to win the mythical "state title" if we won.) I used to watch wrestling when I was younger, but couldn't remember what the title belt looked like. A quick Google image search gave me something to work on, and after a week or so with posterboard, black fabric, gold spraypaint, my printer, about a dozen bags of fashion beads from Wal-Mart (which took a LONG time to set individually with tweezers), and a LOT of superglue (seriously, I probably killed quite a few brain cells that week - you could smell the glue from the hallway), the belt was born...

    Had to put it away when we lost the series last year, I really should start bringing it to Bball games again.

    (And yes, the Iowa in the center does spin)

    You are a true "Superfan". This is the type of creativity us "old timers" look for from CA!

    Good stuff!

    There is a new girl in Cyclone Alley that scares me. They show her on the screen sometimes and she is usually over by the area the team comes in from.

    If you decided to put that baby up on ebay I bet it would go for some good dinero.

    I have had an offer to buy it. My price is a little too high.

    That is not something you sell. That is something that should be handed down to the next generation and brought to every game.
