Bummed About A Busted Bracket? Nobody’s Perfect—-No Really.
Let's face it. Even before the men's college basketball tournament started the odds of picking every winner of every game correctly were astronomical. Some statisticians put the odds at 9.2 quintillion to 1--that's a number with 18 zeroes! But that's if you flipped a coin for every outcome which no one who is even remotely serious about picking correctly would do. So more realistic odds would be lower--but still gigantic.
With both Villanova and Duke losing over the weekend, there is not one single perfect bracket left in the U.S out of the over 18 million people that are participating on ESPN's site. So, since we're all in the same boat, we might as well get a laugh out of it. The Sporting News has put together a string of humorous memes that will help alleviate the sting.
