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).
DRONE EVEN TRY IT: In Charlotte, Mark Washburn reports Charlotte-Mecklenburg police yesterday said that a "camera-toting drone flew into Bank of America Stadium" during Thursday’s Chiefs-Panthers exhibition game. Its operator was "detained and, after questioning, the unidentified man was released and the information was forwarded" to the FAA. NFL VP/Communications Brian McCarthy said that he was "not aware of drones invading any other NFL venues" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 8/27).
