CYST: Week 2

Expert Picks

Week one is in the books and we have 16 glorious weeks of regular season football ahead of us.  Usually, this is a great time for any fan because you still have hope, but that’s not the case this year.  Some fans have already given up and some are scratching their head and hoping their team redeems themselves.  Doesn’t matter; it’s still football…even if you’re a Lions fan.

Some people did some things in some of the categories, but the most surprising to me were the 3 people who got an Against the Grain point for picking the Jets over the Lions.  I mean, I know the Lions are #bad and not #good, but picking the Jets?  Brass balls son, brass balls.  Let’s take a look at the data…

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.  This only contains those of you who actually scored a point in CYST.  Want to see your name here?  Do better and stop sucking.

Wondering why some of the names have a different background color?  Well, that’s because of a fantastic feature of 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.

No Thursday night game for the NFCN or NFCS, but don’t wait until Sunday to make your picks. Get your but over to CYST and make a pick for the Baltimore @ Cincinnati game.  Totes exciting.  Go, 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.
