    BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhuanet) -- The Oregon Urology Institute suggested U.S. college guys to have vasectomy as an excuse for the upcoming March Madness.

    "When March Madness approaches you need an excuse ... to stay at home in front of the big screen," the advertisement of the clinic's radio said. "Get your vasectomy at Oregon Urology Institute the day before the tournament starts."

    It usually takes two to four days for men to recover from the operation, according to Terry FitzPatrick, an administrator of the institute.

    "Wouldn't it be ideal," FitzPatrick said, "just to be able to have your vasectomy so you could watch March Madness?"

    He had reserved a dozen appointment slots for March 19, the day before the first tipoffs of the NCAA Tournament.

    By Thursday afternoon, 15 men had signed up. FitzPatrick expected to fill all 24 slots and to make the promotion annual.

    "It was just kind of a trial balloon," he said.

    To help sell the idea, The Score promised to send each fixed fan a "recovery kit" that includes sports magazines, free pizza delivery and a bag of frozen peas.
