KELLER (CBSDFW.COM) – A 2-year-old girl from Keller did something this week that millions and millions of Americans tried to do and failed. She picked a nearly perfect March Madness bracket.

Her mom, Heather Henry is musically minded but willing to comply with what she calls her husband’s “sports obsessions,” even when he’s out of town.

“One morning, he calls me up and says you need to get out of bed and make sure all the kids need to have their brackets,” Heather remembers.

It was March Madness.

“I started out forcing the wife to do it with me and that’s always been fun. I’ve got a 5-year-old. Lola’s 2-years-old. And then, Jackson’s one,” Nathan Henry said.

So, Heather sat the kids down and for 45 minutes picked their choices for 63 games.

Heather would ask something like, “Do you like VCU or Butler?”  Lola, who can’t pronounce her “T’s” yet, said “Buller.” Lola liked Butler because as any 2-year-old knows, Butler is funny!

“Typical potty humor. They just thought Butler…They mistook Butler for butt!” Heather said.

Not to remain the butt of anyone’s joke, the Butler Bulldogs went all the way.  But in the end, Lola went with a new dog.

“Do you like Bulter or UConn?” Heather asked Lola?  “UConn,” Lola replied.  “You like UConn!!” Heather said.

The UConn Huskies won it all. So did Lola.

Nathan Henry said, “In the Yahoo Sports Group, she ended up in 619th place which put her in the 99.95 percentile.”

That’s 619th place out of millions.

In case you’re wondering, Lola is just like any 2-year-old. But that hasn’t stopped friends and relatives from wondering if she can pick out some winning lottery numbers.  Her parents say maybe she will, when she’s done blowing bubbles of course!
