Get a Vasectomy, Enjoy More Roundball: "Research shows four out of five guys want to schedule their vasectomy before a major sports event," the Oregon Urology Institute declares in new radio ads. "It's Snip City, and we have the ticket for 24 lucky guys to get their premium vasectomy appointment on the day before the tournament." (Via Rebel Dad.)

This could be considered a "reach-in" foul on the guy in posession of the ball.

So the day after lets say the NCAA Men's championship game...the search term vasectomy will be a hot trend on Google...Hmmm

Scheduling your vasectomy before a major sports event? I'd like to see someone then run the New York Marathon...

From the article: Some men, Walker says, harbor misconceptions about the Big V: that the procedure will change their hormones or sex drive. "Nope" he says, "Or that they'll swell up the size of a grapefruit. That's pretty uncommon." "Pretty uncommon?" If you're talking about my balls swelling up to the size of a grapefruit, it had better be "never in a million years!" Or I'm not going anywhere near that knife.

This still makes me feel like curling up into a ... ball. And it's so demeaning, as if we could be bought off by some hoops and pizza. The nerve! btw, could I have some buffalo wings instead of the pizza?

Just had my vasectomy done last Friday I had to spend the weekend recovering around the 3 reasons why I got it done. I think a weekend of sports is a lot better than 3 kids during the recovery process. This isn't a new idea, my neighbor told me that several of his co-workers rented a hotel suite for the same reason several years ago.

It's too bad they can't give everyone a vasectomy at birth and then require that you meet certain financial and mental requirements in order to get it reversed. . .

Doc: I agree on the mental requirements. You need a license to drive a car, but not to create human life. Financial? No. Some of the best parents I know would fail your requirements. Conversely some of the worst and dumbest I've ever seen would pass. Lack of intelligence = Bad Parent Lack of money != Bad Parent As for vasectomies and sports... Chicks dig the no ball...

If you're gonna do it...and it's a big decision, what better time to do it? Be sure to act like a woman a real high-maintenance pain in the ass. I highly recommend the first weekend in October. Lots of good football games.

Act like a woman? My wife had three kids without an epidural. I wouldn't pass a kidney stone without painkillers.
