My First Bracket

Have you fallen prey to Warren Buffet’s Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge? I have. Despite knowing the (approximate) odds of winning, it was enough impetus for me to register and fill out a bracket. I’m not a “fantasy” player for any sport but have to say I was incredibly impressed with Yahoo’s bracket website. Brilliantly done guys! The big winner here is, of course, Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans. Brilliant advertising with basically zero probability of having to payout. Math experts may be arguing about the exact odds of picking a perfect bracket but all agree it’s 1 in BILLIONS (a rough calculation puts my bracket at 1 in 7.5 billion). I read ESPN has had over 30 million brackets filled out online over the years and have never seen a perfect one.

Well, enough chit chat. Here’s my bracket:
