Mexican players banned from having sex, drinking booze during World Cup

The head coach of Mexico's World Cup soccer squad says his players will be prohibited from having sex and drinking alcohol during the tournament, explaining that "we're not going to a party."

"If a player cannot endure a month or 20 days without having intercourse, then you are not prepared to be a professional," coach Miguel Herrera said.

Brazilian players should take heart: At least they're only banned from having "acrobatic sex."
