Canadian Football Coach releases CD

Montreal Alouettes head coach Don Matthews is the star of a new CD and video featuring his favourite rallying chant.
Matthews will launch a tune called What Time Is It? on Monday at the Montreal Casino. The CD was made by Whimsical Music, producers of novelty songs. It is based on a segment of a speech the veteran coach gave at the Alouettes' 2002 Grey Cup parade, when he repeatedly asked his players, "What time is it?" They answered with things such as "time to get busy."
The Alouettes opened the 2005 season with a 31-21 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Wednesday, Matthews's 66th birthday. It was the 214th regular-season win of his career, extending his league record. He also has 12 playoff victories and five Grey Cups.
Matthews said this week he has no plans to retire. "The fun times are the games," he said. "The reason I stay in the game is that I live for the games."
