Say what you will about MARTA, but just don't say it is inconvenient for Hawks games. The train pops you out at the arena. No transfers. No long walks. Just to escalator rides. You can knock Atlanta for all kinds of things. But if you like living in a big city, you like your mass transit to feel convenient. And even the most ardent MARTA hater, has to smile as he relaxes in his Al Horford jersey avoiding the rush hour traffic on the way to the game.
Plus, after big wins, the spontaneous Hawks cheers that sometimes break out just make you feel warm and fuzzy.
