Oh, to enjoy the luxuries of chartered flights and buses.
Upscale travel is one of the many luxuries that NFL players enjoy. But the New Orleans Saints received a rude welcome to Atlanta ahead of Thursday night's game with the Falcons when their ride was egged Wednesday by airport workers.

Backup quarterback Chase Daniel was the first Saints player to tweet about it: "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 chimed in shortly after.
"Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers," Graham wrote on Twitter. Classy! 'RISE Up' smh."
The Saints surely must have been riled up until they remembered that someone else would clean up the mess. Back to life at the top.
