I love the added excitement Warren Buffett created for the NCAA Tournament with his offer of $1 billion to anyone who turns in the perfect bracket. It's a no-lose proposition for the mogul for two reasons:

Lord knows I won't win it. I've never won any bracket contest that I've ever entered. Ever. And you know why? Because I love college basketball. I don't just watch the teams from Kentucky. I watch them all.  I'm the type who always thinks he's got this because I pay close attention.
