Iowa State fans are incredible! Cy is the joyful mascot of the Iowa State Cyclones. Cy’s Perfect Day tells the story of Cy enjoying the company of friends before Cyclone football games. All is well when the Cyclones win. But Cy is concerned, after a loss, about how his friends will react. Will they still come back the following week? Cy finds out that Iowa State fans always come back. Nobody likes to lose a game. But if the team is showing great hustle and effort, they will be rewarded with unconditional loyalty from the fan base. Those shared experiences, in both wins and losses, are what connect the fans to each other and the teams – and what makes the celebration of the victories that much more special. Young Iowa State fans will read this book over and over. And parents and grandparents are sure to share in the fun.
For the better part of two decades John Walters has enjoyed his role as “Voice of the Iowa State Cyclones.” Selected by his peers as a four-time Iowa Sportscaster of the Year, John brings enthusiasm and energy to every Cyclone football and basketball broadcast. His association with Iowa State started in the Johnny Orr era, and carries on to this day. Cy’s Perfect Day brings to life John’s vision of what being a Cyclone fan is all about – and shows why it’s the people that make Iowa State such a special place.
