Business Insider- Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Dan Gilbert’s Quicken Loans are partnering to award anyone who fills out a perfect 2014 Men’s NCAA Tournament bracket with $1 billion. The prize will be paid out in 40 annual installments of $25 million. If there’s more than one winner they’ll have to share. The winner or winners can also take or split up an immediate $500 million lump sum payment. “It is our mission to create amazing experiences for our clients. This contest, with the possibility of creating a billionaire, definitely fits that bill,” Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer of Quicken Loans said in a statement. He added: “We’ve seen a lot of contests offering a million dollars for putting together a good bracket, which got us thinking, what is the perfect bracket worth? We decided a billion dollars seems right for such an impressive feat.”
Well it looks like I’ll be filling out a perfect bracket this year. Done and done. I can’t wait to be a billionaire. That’s gonna be great. Think of all the things I’ll be able to do. I’ll buy the biggest house in Iowa (probably cost about $300,000. Stuntin’). Then I’ll go ahead and hire a full time cooking staff and have them make me nothing but Chinese food because it’s the best food in the world. Call me a communist, I don’t give a fuck. I’ll be a billionaire (which I think kind of goes against everything Communism represents but I’m not sure). And then with the money left over I’ll just convert it into gold coins and dive into them like the the Ducktales. Probably do that every hour on the hour. Maybe switch it up depending on how I feel. And that’ll be my life. Eating Chinese food and diving into gold coins. The life I’ve always wanted but could never afford until now. Oh, you’re saying I should be worried about my bracket? And that it isn’t easy/is truly impossible to fill out a perfect March Madness bracket? Doubt it. All I need is the proper motivation and a billion dollars qualifies. Normally I fill out about 10 brackets. Yeah I’m that guy. But not this year. I’m only filling out one. That’s all I’m gonna need.
PS- This guy in the comment section of this article is just the worst. Shut the fuck up guy. Nobody likes you or your ideas of philanthropy. Saying a bracket is meaningless is the most meaningless thing I’ve ever heard.
