Autistic Teen Picks First Two NCAA Rounds Perfectly

He studied all season for the tourney  Link

An autistic teenager from the Chicago area has done something almost impossible.

Nearly 48 games into an upset-filled NCAA tournament, 17-year-old Alex Hermann is perfect.

"It's amazing," he says. Truly.

The teenager predicted that Northern Iowa would beat the Kansas Jayhawks. He picked Ohio to knock off Georgetown. And Cornell to knock off Wisconsin.

In fact, he picked every game through the first two rounds correctly. The odds of anybody doing that? One in 13,460,000, according to BookofOdds.com. It's easier to win the lottery. Twice.

"I'm good at math," Alex, a Glenbrook South High School student, said. "I'm kind of good at math and at stats I see on TV during the game."

Alex entered the bracket on CBSsports.com's bracket challenge. His 24-year-old brother Andrew, who helped him enter his picks into CBS' bracket manager, also entered the contest -- and ranks behind 500,000 other people. “My bracket is totally shot,” hist 24-year-old brother Andrew said. “So is everyone else I know.”

ESPN estimates around 4.78 million played in their bracket challenge, but no one picked all the games correctly. The leader at ESPN’s bracket has already missed four games.

But Alex Hermann's miraculous bracket is still a picture of perfection.

The odds of a perfect wire to wire bracket? As high as 1 in 1,000,000,000,000.

"YOU LIE" not from the right ..but from SCOTUS....

Justice Alito mouthed ( NOT TRUE ! ) while shaking his head No ..to Barack Obama's juvenile and very un-Presidential comment about the Supreme Court's decision last week  ....

 The President ( fmr. Senior Lecture-in-Law)  attacked the Supreme Court in a SOTU on National TV in front of the whole world for defending the First Amendment. .

Pres.Obama saying the ruling would "open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections"............     FALSE !

Obama was lying about what the ruling means.

It's pretty clear that the Presitent crossed the line with this serious breach of protocol ...........

 He displayed tonight,that he does not understand LAW or what "separation of powers" means ..to make that kind of a blithering ignorant statement about the ruling .........

Obama is losing it and has now turned to demogoguery.............
