    The ball’s in your court men! 

    21st Century Urology in Orland Park hopes to score with a new marketing approach for their vasectomy procedures. They're asking men to schedule the snippy procedure just before the NCAA Tournament calling it a legit way to "cut" work for March Madness.

    “Here’s an excuse for a guy to sit on the couch for up to four days,” Dr. Robert Bonzani tells the SouthtownStar.

    Men who schedule vasectomies March 18 or 19 and March 25 or 26, the first two rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament will get a free pass out of work and the docs at 21st Century Urology will throw in a free pizza and bag of frozen peas for all patients while they remain benched.

    “If they have friends, this is the perfect way they can all hang out together with their peas and pizza,” Dr. Tony Mammen, one of the urologists who set up the campaign tells the Southtown Star.

    Approximately half a million vasectomies are performed in the United States each year, according to the National Institutes of Health, and the four days of rest the docs are prescribing is no lauging matter. Men who get their pipes trimmed need to take it easy to avoid swelling and discomfort.
