Warren Buffett, Dan Gilbert offering $1B for perfect NCAA bracket*

*SPOILER: You will not have a perfect NCAA bracket.

Dear SB Nation readers and Internet enthusiasts wherever you may be right now.

As you know from this headline, Quicken Loans and Berkshire Hathaway are offering a $1B prize for an impossible accomplishment.

This was announced by Warren Buffett (NYSE:BRK.A) Dan Gilbert (NBA:CAVS) with a several-day, narcissistic build-up culminating in a "Facebook post" on the Quicken Loans "page."

The odds of filling out a perfect NCAA tournament bracket are 1:4,294,967,296 so feel free to stop reading here. Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing.

The good news is that the SB Nation dot com and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven blogs at SB Nation have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you with such an absurd publicity stunt.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT SB NATION WILL FILL OUT A PERFECT BRACKET BEFORE THE "WIZARD OF OMAHA" PICKS ONE.

But if you still want to enter, read about the contest details here.
