The Factor

Coaching advice you can use:

India's cricketers at the Champions Trophy in South Africa are being encouraged by their coach to have sex to boost their on-field performance, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The benefits of sex feature prominently in a secret document circulated among players by coach Gary Kirsten and mental conditioning expert Paddy Upton, the Hindustan Times said in a front-page report.

It came as India take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their first Champions Trophy match in Centurion on Saturday.

Back when I was rowing crew in college, we in fact had a "no noogie" rule during the spring season. Personally, I thought it was absolute nonsense. Did I break it? Well, all I'll say is that I was the smallest and weakest guy on the team and needed all the performance-enhancement I could get.
