NBC’s PR staff just released this statement from Mike Milbury: “I reached out to David Morehouse and the Penguins about the comments I made yesterday on Philadelphia radio. In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans.”
Morehouse is the Penguins’ president.
Well, that ought to clear things up, right?
The most encouraging part of the apology is that it’s an open acknowledgment that Milbury went after the Penguins institutionally, which is not the sort of thing national announcers do whilst retaining their jobs.
UPDATE 1:48 p.m.: And here’s Sidney Crosby’s reaction, and other stuff from Josh in Boston.
