Questions of sex before big game

VANCOUVER -- It was the annual sex question at the Grey Cup coaches press conference yesterday.

For years Jim Hunt, who covered 50 Grey Cups, used to ask the question of the coaches about their policy involving players having sex before the big game.

With Eskimos Danny Maciocia being new to the press conference, I asked the Jim Hunt question in his absence again this year.

"Whatever they've done to get here, keep it up," said Maciocia, who may have liked to have rephrased that.

"I haven't been getting my share," he added of the schedule of a head coach in the playoffs.

Too much information.

Last year Toronto Argos head coach Pinball Clemons had the best response ever when I asked the question:

"Personally speaking, this game is of such great magnitude that far be it for me to interrupt what may be a player's normal course of action for readying himself for a game," said Pinball.

"If it has worked thus far, please indulge.

"If it has not benefited you to this point, please abstain."
