BUFFETT PLEDGES $1 BILLION FOR PERFECT NCAA MEN'S BASKETBALL BRACKET
Warren Buffett is offering $1 billion to anyone who can correctly guess the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Basketball buffs can win more than bragging rights if they can guess the perfect NCAA bracket for this year's tournament. Warren Buffett has promised a $1 billion prize to any contestant who correctly predicts the winners of all 67 games. The question remains – how likely is it for someone to create the winning bracket? The answer may be more disappointing than inspiring. Bloomberg.com quoted De Paul University math professor Jeff Bergen saying the odds of an individual with zero knowledge of the beloved March Madness season picking every single winning team correctly is less than 1 in 9 quintillion. However, if you do have some expertise in the subject your odds go up to about 1 in 128 billion, according to Bergen.
TOM BRADY SAYS HE WON'T WATCH SUPER BOWL
On Monday, Tom Brady said he won't be watching the Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Broncos, instead preferring to treat the season as over, per the Boston Herald. "I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully. Those games are hard to watch," Brady said. "I don’t see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game or watch it. Our season is over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching a game. That's pretty much how I feel."

George Clooney may have skipped last week’s Golden Globes, but he caught wind of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s big monologue joke at his expense — and he plans to exact revenge. Fey said of Gravity, Clooney’s movie with Sandra Bullock, “It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.” It’s a pretty good line, which Clooney admits. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t plotting against them. “They have poked the bear with a stick… I don’t want to scare Amy or Tina, I don’t want them to be afraid at all...but they poked the bear,” joked Clooney in an interview with "Access Hollywood."
