Boston, MA – As the first weekend of March Madness has come to a close, people all across the country are upset by teams like Duke letting them down and eliminating them from winning the billion dollar prize that Warren Buffet was offering. As of right now, there will be ten cash prizes of $100,000 going out to the contestants with the closest brackets. However, one man thought he still had the chance at the billion dollar prize.
A software salesman who works at CompuTrend outside of Government Center spent the better of his Monday morning trying to learn about each and every team so he could create the perfect bracket. Jack Swanson, a New York native, created a Yahoo account and was just about ready to create a bracket.
“I thought I could get away with it,” Swanson told us. “I saw that a bunch of friends and co-workers were out of the running, and I thought I’d be able to get away with, but Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans really know what they’re doing.”
When asked what he was going to do now, he told us since he now had a Yahoo account, he would probably spend the rest of his work day playing online pool.
