March Madness, a perfect time for a vasectomy

Filed under: Just For Dads, Places To Go, In The News, Weird But True

The word vasectomy makes many men cringe in anticipated pain. Based on the few men I know well enough to talk about such things with, I don't think it's really all that bad. The procedure itself is a quick out-patient surgery, but the recovery can take a few days. But according to the Oregon Urology Institute, many men have a hard time sitting around for four days while everything heals. For those guys, the Institute has suggestion: have the procedure done when you are going to be sitting around for days anyway.

"When March Madness approaches you need an excuse ... to stay at home in front of the big screen," the clinic's radio ad says. "Get your vasectomy at Oregon Urology Institute the day before the tournament starts. It's snip city."

Yeah, they probably should have left out the 'snip city' part. That even makes me cringe a bit. But the radio ads are a brilliant idea that actually seem to be working. Institute Administrator Terry FitzPatrick says he has already reserved a dozen appointment slots for March 19, the day before the Men's Division Basketball Championship begins, and another dozen for March 26, before the tournament's second week.

So, how about it guys? If your family is complete and you plan to watch the games, why not do it with a bag of frozen peas between your legs?
