Longtime Toronto writer Jim “Shaky” Hunt made this an annual thing, and after his passing it’s been continued by the Edmonton Sun’s Terry Jones. So coaches know it’s coming, and can prepare. Here’s Campbell’s answer.

Ottawa! Edmonton! Live from Winnipeg! With this much excitement, who even has time for sex?
