I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi where I learned the three rules of life: Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.
DAN GOT 3 POINTS
Now stop crying.
Well, my life is over. The Indians blew a 2-0 lead and let the Yankees bend them over the kitchen sink. I should be LOL’ing the Indians, like the rest of the world, but I can’t. No, instead of reveling in others misfortune, I have to worry. I’m worried about my job; hell, I’m worried about my life. See, the CEO here is not only the person that I report directly too; he’s not just the person whom I have a meeting with today, but he’s also a Cleveland Indians fan. With any luck, he’s still drunk and won’t be in today. Then again, if he’s drunk, this is probably the best place to be. I’m so screwed…and not in the happy, happy, fun-time way.
Anyway, it’s Thursday, and you know what that means. Well, what it means outside of being just another Thursday where Donny still hasn’t finished his deck. That’s right, it’s time to Call Your Shot on Thursday. The Thursday part is kind of irrelevant, being that you can make your pick right up until the moment the game starts, but CYST has stuck….like your mom’s butt cheeks.
Let’s look back on last week, shall we? Nobody nailed it (obligatory mom joke) with the NFCN/NFCS games, but we did have some people make a few points here and there for there to be some movement at the top. Horse didn’t get any points, while Reggie and Potatoes did, thus breaking the three way tie for first place. Reggie managed to take it one step further and grab sole possession of first place all by himself, without anyone’s help what-so-ever. For those of you who are keeping up with the non-bitch bois who pick every game, ASR nailed another one. That’s right, he’s correctly picked the outcome of two games this year…neither were NFCN/NFCS games so let’s point and laugh at him for wasting his time on that. Here’s the full breakdown:
WEEK FIVE WRAP UP
- DanOnWis, 37, Minnesota Vikings over Chicago Bears
- Reggie, 51, Carolina Panthers over Detroit Lions
(These guys aren’t so shitty)
Margin of Vctory:
- CJammin, Minnesota Vikings over Chicago Bears by 3 points
- Curtis Fryer, Minnesota Vikings over Chicago Bears by 3 points
- TheHairy1, Carolina Panthers over Detroit Lions by 3 points
(It’s nice to see Jammin and Hairy grouped together. They make a cute couple.)
- DanOnWis, Detroit Lions 24 points in a loss vs. the Carolina Panthers
- DanOnWis, Dallas Cowboys 31 points in a loss vs. the Green Bay Packers
- jmac34, Chicago Bears 17 points in a loss vs. the Minnesota Vikings
- LKP, Minnesota Vikings 20 points in a win vs. the Chicago Bears
- potatoes, Minnesota Vikings 20 points in a win vs. the Chicago Bears
- Reggie, Minnesota Vikings 20 points in a win vs. the Chicago Bears
Against The Grain:
(Seems like you bitches like your safe spaces too much to take a chance)
(Your mom is disappointed)

The above only represents games that involved the NFCN or NFCS. If you wish, the leader board for those who weren’t too “busy” to pick all the games is here. You’re welcome, MKE.
Wondering why some of the names have a different background color? Well, that’s because a feature was added to the CYST site. If you click on My Account on the top right of the CYST site (when you’re logged in), you will see my todo list for that page, but also a color picker. If you choose a color there (and click update), that color will be the background on the site in tables where your name appears.
We have a game tonight involving an NFCS team. The mighty Eagles of Philadelphia soar into the den of the fearsome Carolina Panthers in what is sure to be a contest filled with excitement. Actually, it will probably suck since it’s a Thursday night game. Go make your picks. How do you get to the site so that you can pick games? Well, that’s a good question. If only there was a uniform resource locator in the form of a hyperlink.
