They need laser-sharp focus

A commentator uttered this one during the New Zealand/Argentina Womens’ Field Hockey Olympics game. This is a congruent conflation of “laser focus” and “razor-sharp”, both meaning to be particularly clear and focused. Laser and razor rhyme and both indicate cutting, probably contributing to the mashup. A big thanks Zoe Danger for hearing his one and sending it in.
