Buccigross said something smart!

Normally I hate John Buccigross, but my hatred for him doesn't come close to my hatred for NFL celebrations (perhaps you remember my past work). So when Bucci mentioned this little beauty in his most recent editorial on ESPN.com, I was more than thrilled:

"Malkin has a similar boyishness [compared to Ovechkin] in his interactions with teammates and the way he plays the game with wild abandonment. He is not a freight train or rock star like Ovechkin, but he, too, acts like a 5-year-old on Christmas morning when he scores a goal. It is not the contrived, third-rate end zone skit of an NFL receiver, but a reflex of pure joy. From Russia, with love."
