US to begin using Predator drones for stadium flyovers

The defense department announced a change in policy today that replaces human-piloted jets and helicopters with Predator drones for fly-overs before big games.

A defense department spokesman cited the removal of human error and wasting slightly fewer tax-payer dollars as reasons for the switch.

Some fans are disturbed by the controversial announcement.

“I don’t know, it just seems wrong to me,” Philadelphia Eagles fan Carl Drobin said. “Isn’t this how Terminator started?”

But the defense department is quick to point out this isn’t how Terminator started because Skynet was actually controlled by computers, whereas the Predator drones are operated by humans on the ground.

The drones will see their first action beginning with the Major League playoffs this week. Despite flying robot death machines circling the stadiums, the games are still expected to be boring.
