PRETTY BIRDS: ESPN.com's Darren Rovell noted Falcons season-ticket holders this year will be "eligible to get a cheerleader visit at their seat," as part of the team's "Memories Program." Fans can use "memory points," which are awarded "based on longevity of being a season-ticket holder, to stand on the field during the player intros, get a personal visit from the team mascot or receive an autograph from a Falcons player" (ESPN.com, 8/26).
