Poor, Deluded Moi

I'm going to fill out the entry for Warren Buffett and Quicken Loans' $1 Billion NCAA bracket challenge. Yes, the odds are 1 in 9 quintillion against anyone winning, that is,
If all 317 million people in the U.S. filled out a bracket at random, you could run the contest for 290 million years, and there’d still be a 99 percent chance that no one had ever won.
I'll get some enjoyment out of playing---and fantasizing--just as I will for spending $5 on a Mega Millions lottery ticket now that the jackpot is $400 million.

If someone does win the Bracket Challenge, I'll take it as proof that all is not randomness and that God does exist. Not logical, I know, but allow me to have my delusions.
