How do I decide?

CYST: Week 5

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.

Week 4 is done.  Only a few people have died from Covid, but with any luck they’ll still cancel the season.  The big, exciting news is that the A’s won yesterday so they’re still alive in the American League playoffs.  They’ll probably lose today, but as long as the Rays knock out the Yankees, I’m okay with it.  Hold on, this just came up in shuffle…

Gets the blood flowing, right?  Anyway, I bet y’all are wondering how last week went.  Well, STFU and I’ll tell you.  Potatoes nailed the Falcons @ Packers game, and while I’d like to be happy for him, I am saddened that LoW didn’t score…a point in CYST.  He still scored with our wives.  Surprisingly, Curtis stays in first after he didn’t blow a big lead.  Other people did some shit; see below.


Total Points:

  • bp, 64, New Orleans Saints over Detroit Lions
  • jmac34, 64, New Orleans Saints over Detroit Lions
  • potatoes, 46, Green Bay Packers over Atlanta Falcons

(BP took a break from being a farmer to score.)

Margin of Victory:

  • potatoes, Tampa Bay Buccaneers over Los Angeles Chargers by 7 points
  • potatoes, Green Bay Packers over Atlanta Falcons by 14 points

(He’s going to be impossible to live with.)

Team Points:

  • potatoes, Green Bay Packers 30 points in a win vs. the Atlanta Falcons
  • natesweet, New Orleans Saints 35 points in a win vs. the Detroit Lions
  • potatoes, Atlanta Falcons 16 points in a loss vs. the Green Bay Packers

(Nate is the meat in a Potato sammich.)

Against The Grain:

  • None

(Nobody was brave.)

Nailed It:

  • potatoes, Atlanta Falcons@Green Bay Packers

(Still not in the lead tho.)

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, Donny.


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.

NFCN/S game tonight so get your picks in early.  Bucs at the Bears.  Big Dick Nick and Brady.  This is the QB play we deserve.  Go Bears and 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.



Don’t mind this part as I’m just putting it here so that I will remember.  Had to trick the site into thinking the Steelers/Titans game was completed so you would automatically be sent to week 5 for picks.  When the game is rescheduled, I’ll reset the dates and to do that I will need to know this number: 1162  Thank you, that is all.  Go make your picks.
