The New Orleans Saints got a rude and messy welcome to Atlanta last night ... as airport workers hurled eggs at a charter bus carrying the team!
The smelly assault went down moments after the Saints got off the plane in Atlanta and boarded a bus. Officials at Atlanta's airport confirm that eggs were thrown at the bus as it drove off the tarmac.
Several Saints players, including star tight end Jimmy Graham, blamed airport workers for the incident.
Graham tweeted ...
Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh— Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) November 29, 2012
Airport officials say they are scrambling to find out who's unleashed the eggy hell.
The Saints flew in for tonight's game against the Atlanta Falcons -- and we're guessing the egg culprits are big fans of the dirty birds.
Fun fact: Eggs can really mess up your paint job, guys.
