Recently in the Falcons-Saints rivalry, one New Orleans player pretended to urinate on the Falcons logo, Atlanta receiver Roddy White frequently talked about his hatred for the Saints team and its city (except for the food), and after the Saints victory earlier this month, White said, “It's not like they came out here and won a game today. I think we kind of gave it to them.”
The two teams clearly don't enjoy the other's company.
And apparently that extends to the airport workers in Atlanta.
Witness the following tweet from backup Chase Daniel -- who traveled with his team Wednesday to Atlanta in preparation for Thursday's game.
Wow, as we're boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!— Chase Daniel (@ChaseDaniel) November 29, 2012
Tight end Jimmy Graham also noticed the fowl vandalism.
Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh— Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) November 29, 2012
So, that's kind of cool, right? A rivalry that extends all the way to the airport tarmac.
But here's hoping the person who actually had to clean the buses afterward wasn't a big Falcons fans. Otherwise, next time, those airport workers should just use toilet paper to roll the plane after it arrives.
