Fox 5 Atlanta has a story about last night's egging of a New Orleans Saints charter bus as it pulled out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. (We'd provide a link to the story, but is there anyone in New Orleans who doesn't know it by now?)
FOX 5's Aungelique Proctor spoke with veteran bus driver Clarence Lester, who was behind the wheel of the bus when it was hit. He says he's appalled by the incident.
"When we got ready to pull off, I hear this thump, and that's when the egg hit the bus," said Lester.
Lester says he has driven team buses that have been egged before, but it's never happened to him on an airport tarmac. Lester said he feels that the person responsible should be disciplined.
Dried egg remained on the bus on Thursday afternoon. Lester said he had tried to get it off but couldn't—but that he would need to get it off by Friday afternoon before he is scheduled to take the Georgia Bulldogs to Atlanta for the SEC Championship on Saturday.
Great. Now this nice bus driver has to waste his time scrubbing that crap off his bus.
The Saints take on the Atlanta Falcons tonight.
