CYST: Wildcard Week

Featured Opinion Picks
Website | + posts

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.

Holy shit, new work computer for the new year and I was able to login to the admin section on the first try.  This is like the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me and I can’t see life getting any better than this.  I should kms and go out on top, but I will wait until after the Vikings beat the Saints on Sunday.

The regular season is over, and that means somebody won CYST for the year.  It wasn’t me, so I don’t give a shit.  Nate, Jmac and Dan each picked up 2 points and I got 1 point.  If Nate would have picked up an extra 2 points, somewhere, anywhere during the entire season, that would have been enough for him to be crowned as the champion.  He didn’t tho, so we have to give the crown to Gabes.  Enjoy your winning cake.  Congrats to Nate for being the first loser and to Curtis and MiB for tying for 3rd place.  Sister kissing fuckers.

  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 like Andy who picks every game wrong all the time.


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 NFCN/S game tonight, in fact, no game at all.  Thursday night football is over for this season, but we’ll still do CYST on Thursday because fuck you, that’s why.  We have games on Saturday and Sunday for the wildcard weekend, with an NFCN/S game on Sunday, but don’t procrastinate, go make your picks now. No matter if you watch or not, get your butt over to CYST and make a pick for all the games, or be a bitch and just pick the NFCN/S games.  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.
