Analysts of any sport are paid to use intelligent words when describing the games, players, coaches, etc. NBC Sports Network’s Mike Milbury shouldn’t get paid much. During Wednesday’s Flyers/Penguins game while describing how Penguins’ studs Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin can’t get enough of scoring goals and making plays on offense, he used a term that doesn’t fit in any way shape or form.
Instead of using the widely known term “gym rat” or Milbury referred to Crosby and Malkin as “crack addicts.”
“The big guys, Malkin and Crosby. They’re like crack addicts. They can’t get enough of this offensive stuff. They want to go coast to coast and score goals, but it leads to some trouble.”
Because crack addicts love going coast to coast and score goals. That’s the first sign of an addiction – wanting to score goals.
