Let me just start by saying, I love this marketing idea. A new leaf has turned for this organization. Since the summer, Danny Ferry has been working on reshaping this roster. Now the marketing team has come up with this brilliant idea. I don't live in Atlanta but this almost makes me want to take a road trip to cash in on free air freshener.
