The Atlanta Falcons (10-1) are all set to play host to the New Orleans Saints (5-6) on Thursday, but don't expect the Falcons to welcome their division rivals with any southern hospitality. That became apparent when the team landed in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport late Wednesday. They were reportedly treated to a nice round of eggs being thrown their way.Saints backup quarterback tweeted out the following: "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!"Tight end Jimmy Graham confirmed Daniel's tweet by also tweeting: "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! 'RISE Up' smh".And as if getting showered with egg yolk isn't problematic enough, wide receiver Joseph Morgan appears to be suffering through another situation as well. "Eggs, that's cool. Broken outlet in the hotel room #immadnow #aintnobodygottimeforthat".Ah, the whole ordeal just adds more fuel to the bitter NFC South rivalry. Via Deadspin.
