REGINA - If Corey Chamblin plans as well for the Grey Cup game as he did for this morning’s annual sex question, the Saskatchewan Roughriders just might win on Sunday.

QMI Agency columnist Terry Jones asked both Chamblin and Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin the big question — originally and annually asked by the late Jim Hunt — this morning during the annual coaches press conference at the Delta Regina hotel: What are your thoughts on players having sex before the Grey Cup?

Chamblin, being the rookie head coach, went first.

“Some guys may do it, and some guys may not,” Chamblin began. “The biggest thing is I want our guys to be focused. If that’s what it takes for them to win a championship, then go right ahead. You didn’t expect an answer, did you?

“No, they’ll be focused, and they’ll be ready to go. It’s all about football. It’s championship week, and the guys are focused on football. If they win a championship, they’ll have a lot of it.”

Chamblin’s last line drew a big laugh from everyone in the room, leaving Austin speechless.

“I got nothing,” Austin said with a laugh.

The Riders and Ticats will tangle in the 101st Grey Cup game on Sunday. Both teams will conduct their first official practices of the week today. The Ticats will work out in the falling snow at Mosaic Stadium, while the Roughriders will work out indoors down the Trans-Canada Highway in Moose Jaw.
