Bryan Cranston as Walter White has a message for Nick Foles

AMC's Breaking Bad has been off of television for a few years now but Bryan Cranston's Walter White remains one of the most memorable characters of all-time.

Did you know that Cranston is actually a Phillies fan? Which led to one of the writers on the Breaking Bad show almost making White's character a Phillies fan in the show? As the story goes, they opted against it because that would have made White "too unlikable."

So it's almost fitting today to see Cranston reprising his White role while wearing a pretty slick Eagles jacket on NFL Network's Good Morning Football.

Walter had an important message for Nick Foles ahead of Philadelphia's big playoff matchup with the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

"You are not in danger, Nick. You are the danger," the Walter White character says.

"You are the one who knocks ... teams out of the playoffs."

But for some reason he doesn't stop there and adds a "with a possible exception of the Rams," but we'll just act like that last part didn't happen.

What an honor for Mike McKenna.

Not only did he get to meet Gritty Wednesday night, but he also got the Flyers' mascot to sign his mask, which sports a drawing of the fuzz ball (see story).

Looks like Gritty didn't love McKenna questioning his pregame meal — it's obviously 10 plates of pasta … the guy needs fuel.

McKenna is the Flyers' seventh goalie of the season, while the Flyers are the seventh team of McKenna's career.

Now he'll have a special signature to always remember it.

Eagles fan mad about loss allegedly put girlfriend's dog in microwave

Eagles fans have been known to take their frustrations out on horses in the past, but now we can add cruelty to canines to the long list of strange behavior by Philadelphia sports fans.

Kirsten Gaskins was arrested on Sunday evening at a hotel in Hanover Township and has been charged with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Gaskins was at the hotel as "a getaway" from Philadelphia with her girlfriend. She was drinking while watching the Eagles game against the Saints and allegedly became angry once the Saints won, according to police. Gaskins allegedly struck the victim in the face multiple times before threatening to harm her Pomeranian.

Gaskins was not present when police arrived but when she returned and they entered the room they found the dog inside of the microwave. The microwave was never turned on and the dog was reportedly OK.

It's unclear if the Pomeranian had any rooting interest in the game. Dogs usually don't care.
