  • Time to ice my crotch and watch two teams I've never heard of play basketball.

Click on over to the local TV news stations' sites today and you'll likely find a piece that quotes Dr. Stephen Jones, a urologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Why?

That's right, it's March Madness time, which means it's time to pump on the annual story on how men supposedly wait to schedule their snippy snip procedures for NCAA tournament time so they can recuperate in the comfort of their home while watching 16 straight hours of basketball on a Thursday.

NewsNet5 already has their version up. Last year, the USA Today and Fox News both pounded the angle hard.

Today, you'll probably find the story squeezed squarely between "Pill Parties: The Dangerous New Teen Trend" and "Is Downtown Safe Now? We Ask Three Old White People From Macedonia to Find Out!"
