Filling Out NCAA Tournament Bracket Just Got $1 Billion Times Better

Other than seeing the field of 68 for the NCAA tournament on Selection Sunday, filling out your first bracket is probably one of the most exciting things about March Madness. Well, that and watching upset after upset since college basketball never lets us down in that department. Luckily for the people who are all about the Big Dance, filling out brackets just got $1 billion times better.

According to multiple reports, Warren Buffett–yeah the Warren Buffett–will be giving out $1 billion to the person who fills out a perfect bracket. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Dan Gilbert‘s Quicken Loans are the ones behind this giveaway.

I know filling out a perfect bracket is probably more impossible than the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series, but the thought of winning $1 billion is pretty sweet.

March Madness is already full of, well, madness. I am sure so many more people will be filling out a bracket this year in hopes of winning the ultimate prize. I doubt anyone will actually fill out a perfect bracket, but what if someone actually did.

It is not everyday that a person gives out a billion dollars. That day may be among us here shortly.

We don’t even know what the field will look like yet–it is only January–but the announcement of the 68 teams is going to be more exciting than usual.

Like most years, there are so many different teams that could win the Big Dance. Florida, Kentucky, Michigan State, Louisville, Kansas, Syracuse, Arizona and I am just going to stop right there. All of those teams have the talent to win a national title this year.

Regardless, the games are going to be played and one lucky team is going to win the best tournament in sports. Hopefully one lucky fan actually fills out a perfect bracket as well.

Who knows, it could be you.
