KICKBALL PUZZLER

The team "Legends of the Ball" has 20 players. Each player on the team wears a navy sweat band to match their shirts. At the end of the first night of games, they all go to their division bar. The bar manager says, "You can't wear your sweatbands in here." So, the team takes off their sweat bands and throws them in a pile on the table.

When its closing time, they all reach in at random, grab a sweatband and put it on their heads.

What's the probability that 19 out of 20 of these players get their correct sweatband?

We've left out a couple pieces of information for you to figure out. If you think you know the answer email it to ktsubmissions@kickball.com. The 10th correct answer will win some sweet WAKA swag.

Congrats to last month's winner Nate L. He was the first to correctly answer the puzzler!
