Harstfield-Jackson officials investigating egging of Saints team bus


By Christian Boone

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

They may be heroes to Falcons fans, but the airline workers who egged the New Orleans Saints team bus Wednesday night are likely to face disciplinary action, according to airport officials.

“It has been confirmed that eggs were thrown at a New Orleans Saints’ charter bus as they departed the ramp last night,” Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport spokeswoman Myrna White said in a statement. “Airline workers were in the ramp area. Airport and airline officials are investigating the incident and further information will be forthcoming.”

The egging would have flown under the radar had Saints players not tweeted about it.

“Wow, as we’re boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers!” wrote reserve quarterback Chase Daniel. “Guess they do hate us! I’m such a little baby.”

He said it.

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was a bit less charitable, tweeting: “Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! “RISE Up” smh.”

White said Hartsfield-Jackson general manager Louis Miller will be meeting with the workers suspected in the egging.

“Disciplinary action will be taken,” she said.

Meanwhile, the as-yet unnamed workers have succeeded in ramping up what is already one of football’s nastiest, albeit underrated, rivalries.

“Now while I certainly don’t condone these kind of shenanigans, I would like to say that it was nice to see some passion from this city’s fans,” wrote Tim Shepard on Blogging Dirty, a Falcons fan blog. “I guess if you’re going to be labeled as ‘classless,’ you may as well act the part.”

The Falcons will seek to avenge their only loss of the season Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. A Saints loss, meanwhile, would put a damper on New Orleans’ playoff hopes.

Win or lose, the Saints should remain egg-free on their way back to the Big Easy. White said Atlanta police will augment the airport security when the team departs from Hartsfield-Jackson

Re: Atlanta style: SAINTS BUS EGGED AT ATLANTA AIRPORT

Eggs though? I mean what purpose does that serve? You're throwing eggs at a bus that your own people own and have to clean up? AND its Airport employees doing it from the tarmac (sp) which I would think can be a major violation when it comes to the rules of their jobs. How stupid is that? Falcons fans are so stupid they can't even pull a prank that actually makes sense.

They had to throw eggs so they wouldn't throw interceptions.

The question remains: How do you get eggs through airport security?

"Roger Goodell farms"

Re: Atlanta style: SAINTS BUS EGGED AT ATLANTA AIRPORT

Exactly what I brought up earlier about the TSA....

Liquids sneaked in, in egg shells.
Violence against traveling passengers.

Officials investigating? I want DHS brought in. Seal Team Six needs to forcibly extract each of them from their homes in the night and they need to go directly to Getmo. Once there Morstead will kick each of them in the nuts 20 times, or until they confess on paper that they are a secret cell sent by Goodell. When they are done, beat them with a Houston phone book for an hour each, while playing Lady Gaga "Poker Face" on a loud speaker, forcing them to stare at naked pictures of Justin Bieber.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Exactly... it HAD to be more than 3oz of liquids, right?
