Doctor offers to trade vasectomy for playoff tickets

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A Colorado doctor has an unusual offer foranyone with extra tickets to Sunday's AFC Championship Game between theDenver Broncos and the New England Patriots: a free vasectomy.

Dr.Steven Broman of Fort Collins is offering to perform the $1,000-plussurgery in return for tickets. A long-time season-ticket holder, Bromanand his family will be at Sunday's game anyway. The extra tickets, hesaid, would go to his staff.

"The only people who wouldn't have topay me in tickets is Tom Brady, but I'd have to do the operation beforethe game," Broman said, laughing.

This isn't the first timeBroman has made such an offer. He made a similar one in 2006 when theBroncos played the Pittsburgh Steelers. That year, he said, he cameclose to making a deal.

"I had a guy who was ready to pull thetrigger, but he said he had only one ticket, so I offered to only do oneside," Broman said. "He didn't think that was very funny."

Broman said he can perform a vasectomy in his office as an outpatient procedure, and recovery takes about 48 hours.

And if the Broncos win Sunday -- Broman is confident -- he's making a similar offer for Super Bowl tickets.

"I'd be happy to score some Super Bowl tickets," he said.
