Bracket Busting

Nobody's Perfect

What are the odds of picking a flawless bracket? According to The Wall Street Journal, about 1 in 240 billion. Such fantastical chances account for the bevy of multimillion-dollar payouts awarded for perfect brackets, all of which are likely to have been busted by now. Among the 5 million or so brackets submitted on ESPN.com, the four leaders all missed two first-round games. Terry Dell, whose company, Dell Sports, offers a $100 million perfect bracket payout, said all of his entries were eliminated on Sunday. So much for perfection.
