If a person signed up for Yahoo! Sports’ Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge, said person had the chance to win $1 billion of Warren Buffet’s dough for a perfect bracket. In the case that said person didn’t correctly call every single game that occurred in this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament, he or she still had the chance to walk away with a cool $100,000 just for placing in the top 20 brackets.
The picture above is from a dude (we think?) named Corey, who correctly called an astounding 48 games, including tonight’s national championship game between Connecticut and Kentucky. Here’s the thing: Corey forgot to select a national champion. That’s a problem if he wants that $100,000 because in order to receive the money, a completed bracket must be turned in.
Thanks to Corey, Mr. or Ms. No. 21 Bracket will now leap-frog him into that money. What could Corey have bought with that $100,000 he just lost?
— Two years in tuition at Sarah Lawrence College, whose $45,212-per-year tuition is the nation’s highest.
— A 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S, which costs $98,900.
— 100,000 Burger King sausage breakfast burritos, off the chain’s new $1 breakfast value menu.
Well if it’s any consolation, we can help him select that winner, even though he won’t be able to enter it into his bracket.
Who does everyone got tonight? The game tips off at 9:10 p.m. EST on CBS.
