Saints running back Alvin Kamara has extremely hilarious takes about the Eagles

One of the bigger butt kickings of the Eagles' magical run to the Super Bowl last season was the 38-7 destruction of the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.

The Eagles and Nick Foles were en fuego. It was a dominating performance.

Which leads us to today, in which we share this seemingly delusional quote from New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

We'd beat the s--- out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling. If we won [versus Minnesota], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back.

OK, Alvin.

You may recall Alvin and his Saints getting beaten by the same Vikings team the Eagles manhandled the following week. 

The quote is from a lengthy Bleacher Report piece about the star running back which is an otherwise fine read. The above quote is pretty funny though.

Mark Nov. 18 on your calendar because that's when the defending Super Bowl champs travel to New Orleans to take on Kamara and his team that nobody was going to stop last season, but were somehow stopped in embarrassing fashion.

Let's take a trip back down memory lane:

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.

Everybody loves Gritty.

Especially the goalies, because the Flyers' mascot makes for some awesome art.

First, it was Calvin Pickard who honored the furry fella on his mask.

Now, it's newest netminder Mike McKenna with the Gritty ink.

McKenna has a neat hockey story and background. He wears No. 56 because it was the number his father Terry used as a race car driver.

The Flyers are McKenna's seventh NHL club.

"I've always been able to perform," he said earlier this month. "It's just been a matter of not being somebody's prospect. That's what I've battled my whole career. I didn't start out with an entry-level contract, so the cards were stacked against me from the beginning, and for whatever reason, I've managed to persevere and keep my career going."

All the way to a fresh Gritty mask. Let's hope we see it in action soon.
