March Madness & Vasectomy - I may owe someone an apology...

Submitted by jtmc33 on March 21st, 2014 at 10:23 AM

Last week, I was talking to a woman who has three kids (all boys).  When I asked if they were going to try for a boy, she said that her husband was getting a vasectomy next Wednesday (as in the day before March Madness).

I then told her that there are more vasectomies scheduled in that week than any other.  She looked at me with a blank stare and asked why....   So, I said, "It's the opening weekend of March Madness... you get to lay on the couch for 4 days and watch basketball"

She stearnly told me, with no hersitation, "My husband isn't into sports."

My responsse..."Well, he obviously is.  And I just ruined this poor guy's master plan."

She laughed, but in a "I'm going to f'ing kill him" sort of way.

So, if you are married to a 35 year old, attractive Emergency Room Doctor, who is ruining your "down time" as you try to watch BBall with a bag of frozen peas on your crotch... I'm Sorry

So, who has their own Vasectomy and March Madness story... let's hear them

Was born the day after Michigan beat Michigan State 60-59 in 2012. Early in the second half of the game my wife started having contractions, called her Dad and said can you leave to come over to watch the 3 kids when the game is OVER! We left for the hospital after the game and my son was born at 6:45 am. As an aside, she was interested in the name Mason and I said I'd agree if it was Mason Blue...she wouldn't go for it.

I wanted to name my son the same thing. So my wife put the name on the birth certificate before she even went up to the room while I was parking the car so that I could not change it.

What a great wife though to say wait till the games over. She's a keeper... like you have a choice.

I did this as well thinking it was a great idea. I got about 26 hours of sympathy and was told to stop being a cry baby and help with the kids. Woman, like they know what pain is

perhaps the best part of a cesarean...they take care of tubal ligation while they're in there, and I continue living my life as the gloriously potent man that I am. No, I don't get a mancation, but I don't have to witness the smoke rising from my ballsack.

I never thought to have it around March Madness.  I had mine on December 30th, so I could have it on that year's insurance.


The procedure is not that bad, more uncomfortable than anything else.


Now, when I went in the first time and he was unable to complete the procedure after digging around for 45 minutes on one side, that hurt real bad for about the 2-3 weeks.

Had the idea this year, called 4 different urologists who had no openings this week.  One booking nurse said, "Oh, those days fill up way early."  So, I'm scheduled Thursday morning of the Masters.  Not a bad consolation prize.
