On Thursday, the New Orleans Saints will take on the Atlanta Falcons in Georgia, with the Saints fighting for their playoff lives against a Super Bowl favorite. After the Saints landed in Atlanta on Wednesday night ahead of that game, the locals made sure the team knows exactly how they feel about the Saints. According to Twitter reports seemingly corroborated by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the team’s bus leaving Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport was actually egged by airport workers. We don’t have a lot of context for this beyond what the players tweeted out themselves, but the event seems to have been confirmed by several Saints players. In any case, check out a few choice tweets from the incident below. 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 Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! “RISE Up” smh — Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) November 29, 2012 How do eggs make people mad? Cool and hilarious prank #childhood #memories — Joseph Morgan(@jmthegreat) November 29, 2012 Photo of the Night Jeremy Lin is having a down season. Quote of the Night “I can tell you that this Miles family is awfully comfortable in southern Louisiana.” –Les Miles making us wonder what it’d be like to run into him at Mardi Gras Tweet of the Night To see how this happened to Kris Humphries, check out the video below, or click here.

Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?lockerz.com/s/265003890 — Kris Humphries (@KrisHumphries) November 29, 2012 Video of the Night You’ve probably seen this already, but you know you want to watch it again.
