Saints Players Claim They Were Egged by Atlanta Airport Workers
As the Saints touched down in Atlanta to take on the Falcons for Thursday Night Football, apparently they didn't receive the warmest of welcomes.
According to several players and their Twitter feeds, the Saints bus was pelted by eggs thrown by airport workers. I personally thought that was a dead art, but a classic move nonetheless.
Tight end Jimmy Graham said via Twitter, "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy!" Backup quarterback Chase Daniel said, "Wow ... we start getting eggs thrown [at] us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"
Kinda wish this sort of thing happened more often. Back on New Years Day in 2008 when the Pittsburgh Penguins' bus was pulling into Ralph Wilson Stadium to play the Sabres, fans were pelting the bus with snowballs. Not quite the same damage done as eggs, but you gotta believe an ice ball or two slipped in there.
