If you're questioning the intensity of the rivalry between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, check out this tweet from Saints backup quarterback Chase Daniel. It came just minutes after the team's charter flight touched down in Atlanta on Wednesday night.
@ChaseDaniel: 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!
Saints teammates Jermon Bushrod and Jimmy Graham re-tweeted Daniel's message, which was tweeted at 7:48 p.m. Wednesday.
Graham confirmed Daniel's tweet a few minutes later:
@JimmyGraham: Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh
Linebacker Will Herring also confirmed the incident:
@wherring54 First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans! Tomorrow should be fun!! #WhoDatNation
You stay classy, Hartsfield International.
