At $100M the odds are in his favor BUT you're still making a ****ing hundred million dollars. I'd take $10M or more, and he could spare $10M like it's pocket lint. You can live off the interest of $10M in some pricy areas of the country and super-safe investments, after all.

 

Of course, I'd make sure it was $10M after taxes. ;)

 

P.S. For $1M? Please. You could easily sell your ticket to someone - a Las Vegas casino, perhaps - for way, way more than that.

I agree with all of that.

 

Additionally, I'd also take 9 million.  8 million.  7 million,  You get the idea.

 

My first instinct was 20 million, simply because he's making a killing, odds-wise, and it's beyond life-changing for me.  A complete win-win.  However, if Buffett decided he wanted to play tough, I'd still take donw to a million.

 

Oh, I know ... I'd say if you offer me 30 million, I volunteer to pay maximum taxes on it!  He would love that! ;)

This Ohio State-Dayton game is incredible.  What a great way to start the Madness!

Darn it, Kraft. Make that shit.

 

 

Anyway, can I join the ESPN TST league? My sure-to-be horrendous bracket deserves a spot in there. 

 

It's really sad how consistently awful I am at predicting this tournament. But at least there's comfort in tradition :-)

I'm not sure that anybody ever created one.

My Badgers beat St Mary's school for unwed mothers, and OSU lost. Good start so far!

LOL ... yeah that was an ugly score. :(

I'm a fan of the Big Ten but OSU laid an egg.

So how'd everyone do yesterday? I lost 3, including one sweet 16 team (New Mexico State). Pretty standard start for me. The wheels should fall off any day now :-D

I got about half the games right. And Delaware lost. And Kenny Smith on TNT made fun of our nickname.

Not a good day for me.

Lets check, I have two brackets going for money. 

 

Not too bad so far. In the one bracket I have 3 losses, and the other I have 4 losses. 

 

Both brackets are above 75% win percentage, that will do well for the ones I am in. 

 

The biggest pick was N. Dakota State over OU. Oh Yea, I picked that one :-D

 If anybody went 16-0 yesterday (ND State? Really?) they are a better man than me. 11-5 but I haven't lost anybody that I have going to the Sweet Sixteen yet.

 

This stuff is crazy. I won my pool three years ago and almost finished last the next year. My wife went 13-3 yesterday and she hasn't watched a men's college basketball game since she was in college.

A guy on the radio this morning said that 0.17% of people on espn had a perfect bracket through yesterday.  Something like 19,000 out of 11 million.

 

I pretty much picked all favorites (except Arizona State over Texas) so I lost 5 games.:cry:  However, my upside is the same as yours ... haven't lost anybody that was supposed to win tomorrow.

My co-worker said that 83% of the brackets from Buffet's 1 Billion dollar got taken out when Ohio State Lost. :-D

And I'm proud to be a part of the 83%. :beer:

 

I would actually expect that there are no perfect brackets left after today.  Certainly not after Sunday, but likely not after today either. ;)

 

You know what it is, right??? ...

I didn't know about the buyout part.  That's interesting.  Yeah, yesterday was a bracket buster day for sure.  Probably the same today.
