    1. Throw a party and watch the game.
    2. Watch at a sports bar.
    3. Watch at home alone.
    4. Hide somewhere and wait for the final score.
    5. Have a heart attack and die before the game.

    I'm already out after the first game. Damn Dayton

    I'd comfortably enjoy the Harlem Globetrotters versus the Washington Generals if someone wanted to take the Generals for a billion.

    I think I read that the odds are the same as if you covered the earth in pennies, more than once, you still wouldn't get there.
    odds of 1 billion billions (1: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000) are so far beyond impossible that our minds can't grasp it.

    Kind of like the national debt :)

    It was so impossible, it was idiotic. Every human being on the planet could have submitted 1,000 different entries and it still would have been an impossible longshot (not to mention they limited the entries to the first 15,000,000). If you got 90% of your picks right, which is impossible, you'd still only have a 1/10th of 1 percent chance of winning.

    But the idiotic media morons lapped it up and gave tons of free publicity to Buffet and Quicken Loans.

    Some Joe Schmoe from Podunk USA should have made the same offer.

    I mean any one of us can say we would pay $$$$$ for a perfect bracket.

    It ain't happenin'.

    I'd ask myself why I felt the need to bet money with $1 billion in the bank.

    I think he meant .. if you had one game left to win the $billion dollar bracket deal, ... what would you do?

    Oh, gotcha. I'd watch it in complete solitude in absolute misery.

    I don't pick brackets, so I didn't follow that real closely, ... but if you got them all right except the last one, didn't you still win some money? A sizable chunk?

    I'd be fine with that so either way, by the time it got to the last game I would be happy.

    I completely missed the Quicken Loans angle but I didn't spend but a few minutes on my bracket.

    I would gamble every penny I could get my hands on on my team to lose so even if I don't get the ridiculous amount I still make a tidy profit
