According to one estimate, at least 95 percent of the 100 million or so brackets filled out all across America were busted by the time the NCAA tournament was barely 12 hours old.

I’m upset. You’re upset. Chances are, your picks are upset as well. And because misery never lacks company, so are all the other geniuses who penciled Cincinnati, Ohio State and Oklahoma into the third round.

According to one estimate, at least 95 percent of the 100 million or so brackets filled out all across America were busted by the time the NCAA tournament was barely 12 hours old.


So just about the only guy still smiling when his head hit the pillow last night was Warren Buffett, and that’s because he won’t have to worry much longer about handing the $1 billion he stuffed under his mattress to anyone who finished the tourney with a perfect score.

Of course, knowing how to play the odds — they were 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or, rounding off, 9.2 quintillion-to-1 against such a possibility — is one reason Buffett still has most of his money.
