Master plan: Drew Brees is getting a vasectomy — but golf comes first

We knew Drew Brees was quite the football enthusiast, but apparently his passion for golf stretches far beyond the fairways.

In a move reminiscent of the one made by (insert male’s name here) in order to be "forced" to sit around and watch (insert major sporting event here), the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees is planning to undergo a pretty quick procedure in early April.

According to friends of Brees, the surgery — usually done in a doctor’s office or clinic and lasting about a half an hour — should be on the Saturday of the Masters.

And sure, Brees has undergone career-saving shoulder surgery in his career. But don’t tell the record-setting QB this is a minor procedure.

On Monday, Brees and his wife, Brittany, welcomed their first daughter, Callen, into the world:

Their new daughter is the couple’s first girl, and fourth child overall. Finally their first girl, four kids overall, an outaptient surgery … it’s not difficult to connect the dots.

Yup, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback has some voices in his ear mentioning the "V" word.

"I think I’m done [having kids]," Brees told NOLA.com earlier this week. "I might have to follow (New Orleans Saints’ radio voice) Jim Henderson’s recommendation from (last week). He was saying the ‘V’ word was next for me — vasectomy. We’ve got some football games to win first."

While the surgery is considered minor, it will keep Brees off his feet for at least a day — which is why he’s also receiving advice about when to have it.

"I’ve been told by those who have experienced it, do it Saturday before the final round of the Masters so I’ve got an excuse to sit around and watch it."

No living golfer is more synonymous with the Masters than Jack Nicklaus (left). Now, Drew Brees is trying to put his mark on the tournament’s famed history, albeit in a rather unique way.

Really, you can’t argue with the logic there. This is a spectacular call by Brees and his advisors. Seriously, bra-vo! — and congratulations on the newest addition.
