March Madness: time for that vasectomy, baybee!

Here we are, on the cusp of March Madness again. And here come the vasectomycommercials.

You know the ones. Urology centers everywhere are trotting them out.

The basic message: Schedule your vasectomy now. Then recover by spending a day or two on the couch watching college hoops with a bag of frozen peas on your, um, lap.

Do the commercials work?

Do guys really wait for the NCAA tournament to roll around to have the Snip to End All Snips? 

Apparently, yes.

According to news stories, some urology centers report a dramatic increase in the number of vasectomies they perform this time of year. Many says business increases by as much as 50 percent. Some centers even kick in free T-shirts, coolers and fast-food coupons to lure men.

Are guys that shallow that they'd respond to this kind of obvious patronizing?

That shallow that they'd postpone surgery until they could watch hoops on TV all day and get a few cheesy trinkets and coupons?

We all know the answer to that one.
