Enjoying a Wednesday lunch with friends in campustown's Stomping Grounds as she has for 10-plus years, Deb Kline of Ames got a surprise this week: a Valentine delivery from the guy who wears red every day. Cy presented a flower bouquet and card from Deb's husband; spirit squad coordinator and driver Kelli Baker (not pictured) provided the portable love song to say what Cy simply couldn’t.

Cy was scheduled for 22 Valentine deliveries -- to homes, businesses, schools and a coffee shop -- Wednesday and Thursday. This annual day-brightening fundraiser supports the Cyclone spirit squad in the athletics department.
