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 to get a vasectomy.

Like I said, I’m not confirming or denying I’m looking into this popular March Madness medical service opportunity. But I will confirm that I like basketball as much as the next fellow. Growing up, I was a complete nut for it, playing hours each day rain or shine and on teams until I snapped my ankle in high school, an impromptu adjustment to my career as a result of coming down from a layup onto the foot of a fellow teammate we called Yank (I have no idea where Yank the nickname came from, and I still to this day don’t know what Yank’s real name is).

I have spoken as of late with several friends who have had a vasectomy in recent years. Not one of them speaks glowingly of it and say that you need at least one full day if not two days to really get back on your feet after it. None timed it to coincide with March Madness, even though several are big college hoops fans. One friend did time the procedure, he said, at the end of the month to avoid having to help his single brother move out of an apartment.

Each friend said the procedure isn’t that bad but be ready to sit down for a while with a six-pack of something and a strategically placed ice pack or bag of frozen peas. I think I understand. And that reminds me, I need go check the frozen veggie situation in our freezer.
