WINNIPEG - Casey Creehan is going to be a dad.

The man who co-ordinates the Blue Bombers defence says his wife Lori is nearly four months pregnant.

"So this will be our first," a proud Creehan said.

Pity the doctors and nurses if Creehan helps with the birth.

If you've watched the Bomber sideline at all, you'll know what I'm talking about.

In-your-face high-fives and chest bumps might not be standard procedure in the delivery room, but they are on the Bomber bench when the defence comes off the field.

At least if it's done its job well.

Few, if any, CFL defences have done it better, so far.

Sure, you need the players to stop people. But you also need the mastermind to pull them all together.

And, in Creehan's case, the man who provides the adrenaline.

Creehan is addicted to the stuff, and he deals it to his players in seemingly unlimited doses.
