Les Overhead doubles Warren Buffett “March Madness” $1 billion offer
(Portland, OR) In a press release issued today from the world headquarters of Les Overhead, it was announced the one-man firm would double the $1 billion offer of Warren Buffett for picking every game in this year’s NCAA March Madness basketball tournament.
“We will double that amount to $2 billion,” said Lois Overhead, P.R. head at Les Overhead. “We recognize a savvy P.R. scheme and publicity bonanza when we see one and we will not stand by idly. One billion is chump change. We offer $2 billion and challenge Mr. Buffett to match it.” Mathematicians calculate the odds of picking all 64 games correctly to be 1 in 4,294,967,296. Roughly equivalent to the chances of being crushed by a flying whale.
