Saints egged on in Atlanta; Mississippi Fruit & Vegetable Growers wrap up Jackson trade show

 

A claim by New Orleans Saints players that airport workers pelted their bus with eggs after they touched down in Atlanta for tonight’s game in the Georgia Dome brought this headline on Charlie Harper’s PeachPundit.com website:

“Atlanta Airport Workers Promote GA Agribusiness To Arriving Tourists.”

Why the poultry party? Perhaps it’s because the Saints own the Falcons,  often seen as the little brother to the Saints  in the NFC South Conference. Losing 11 of the last 13 to your closest rival can create those sorts of perceptions.

In an agricultural event a little closer to home, the Mississippi Fruit and Vegetables Growers Association is wrapping up its conference and trade show at the Hilton on County Line Road in Ridgeland today. The event is presented in conjunction with the Mississippi Agritourism Association.

The trade show closes at 3 p.m.
