And he bailed out? Are you sure? Lol


I swear i read something earlier today that Buffett pulled away from $1billion...but now can't find the darn thing...maybe he's still offering it!!


I really think he is! Too much public pressure I'd bet.

 

That being said...I hee'd and haw'd and finally picked UConn to come out on top of St. Joe...and it's not going well so far :'(


I'm pulling for ya buddy, since i'm already out of the game, i'm pulling for ya all the way!!  Just don't forget about the lil' peoples if you win!!! Smiley Wink


WOO Thanks!! St. Louis had me slightly worried too as they were up and then went to lose it and be down by 12...they're down 4 at the half NBD. UConn within 1!!! Smiley Very Happy

 

 

Also, definitely going to be a myFICO party in EL if this goes down! --Hell it's gunna be an ALL of EAST LANSING party if this going down with Sparty LOL

Good pickin longtime....Colorado screwed my perfection.  I thought I had Pitt, but guess not.  Oh well, I ended up losing 4 more games anyway.

It was a pretty safe offer on his part from the beginning.  The chances of anyone having a perfect bracket was less than the odds of being struck by lightning 3 times in the same day.  I appreciate that he made the offer, but between he and Dan Gilbert the money was no issue if someone was that lucky.

Re: Official March Madness Thread- Let's win that $1billion!

Lots of great games today,  Stanford beating Kansas and Kentucky beating Wichita State!  My bracket has been beaten up bad in every ways possible....just hoping that the Heels can take it all!
