CYST: Week 4

Analysis 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.

Oh joy, wasn’t week 3 fun?  Glad it’s over.  Packer fans are happy that Rodgers secretly started the Covid-19 pandemic so that he could play in the Super Dome without a crowd there.  Tom Brady, who is on pace for 16 INTs this year, is driving Tampa Bay to first place in the NFCS.  The Vikings have the next MVP on their roster in Justin Jefferson; too bad his QB  is more like Weezie Jefferson.  Falcon fans must be really excited to see how big of a lead their team will blow this weekend.  Lions, Panthers and Saints are trying to figure out if all this is worth it.  However, the big surprise is the 3-0 Chicago Bears.  Hands down, the best team in the NFL  With Big Dick Nick at the helm, there is no reason why they shouldn’t win the next 5 Superb Owls.

Not a lot of points scored last week.  Guess y’all saw Curtis call his shot and figured, much like your favorite team, that the season was over.  LoW got a point tho and that’s 2 weeks in a row.  That man is channeling his inner Jimmy the Greek.

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. This means you, MKE.


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.

Broncos at the Jets tonight.  I almost fell asleep typing that.  The game is so boring and bad that you may feel the urge never to make picks again but get your butt over to CYST and make your picks.  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.
