I like March Madness, too, but not enough to get ‘snipped’ over it

According to a recent news report, more men choose this time of year, March Madness time, to get snipped, or to have that notorious progeny-pausing medical procedure known as the vasectomy.

My wife and I recently entered our 40s, and we are expecting our second child soon. Our boy is seven years old. I am not confirming or denying I’m looking into this particular medical service at this time, or am I saying that I stumbled across this CNN news story while researching the procedure on the Web in preparation for it. Okay? Fine, Okay.

If you don’t know, March Madness refers to the National Collegiate Athletic Association, or NCAA, Mens Championship basketball tournament which pretty much lasts the second half of March each year and contributes to mass gambling and lost work hours by the masses managing and participating in office-wide, tournament-bracket money-wagering pools. You can hear the collective gnashing and wailing as upsets in games spread and the tournament steamrolls to the Sweet Sixteen on its way to the athletic-A-bomb known as the Final Four each spring.

But I found it hilarious that some guys use the ‘snip’ to snap up some laying-around time to immerse deeper into the March Madness mayhem, and it has been particularly crazy so far this time around (and sorry Duke Fans, which I am one, I gotta smile when I think of the little-known Mercer Bears from Macon, Ga., beating the Blue Devil powerhouse by seven points. That was crazy).
