Audio: TennisTV commentator can't stop referencing Breaking Bad

Saturday, October 12, 2013 /by

How can we miss you, Walter White, if other TV personalities won't let you leave? TennisTV's Kevin Skinner made a point of referencing Breaking Bad, that character's awards-baiting AMC meth drama that just ran its series finale, an amazing 13 times during the China Open quarterfinal between Serena Williams and Caroline Woznicki last week. Hear Skinner's esoteric speak here:

Serena took the match convincingly, and might quote Walter White (played by veteran actor Bryan Cranston) with these words: "I'm not in danger. I am the danger." So goes her 2013 campaign, in which she has amassed more than $10 million in prize money whilst compiling a 73-4 match record that has instructed her WTA colleagues to, well, tread lightly.

So kudos, Kevin Skinner, on a dazzling display of insider speak and entertaining commentary. You are a fantastic meth-drama historian. Kind of makes you miss Cranston in Malcolm in the Middle, right? Wait. No? Okay, me neither.
