    The Saints/Colts game was visited by UFOs

    By MJD


    Did you watch the Saints dismantle the Colts last Sunday night? You weren't alone -- none of us were -- because intergalactic life forms watched, too. Here's the proof.



    I should point out that the linked Huffington Post article quotes an expert who is certain that the "UFO" in question is actually an insect flying very close to the camera lens.

    But I wholeheartedly dismiss that theory, because it's much more fun to believe that these are alien spacecraft, probably with little green men aboard who plan to touch down and do some probing of Curtis Painter(notes).

    Why would the aliens choose the Saints/Colts game? It's hard to say. Maybe to validate their theories that earthlings will watch anything if you put it on TV. Maybe they were checking up on Jim Caldwell, whom they planted on Earth in 1982. Maybe they were delivering the new neck parts that Peyton Manning(notes) ordered.

    All we know for sure is that now, attending an NFL game puts you at risk for alien exploration and possible abduction. Plan accordingly.

    Wow. That's actually kinda cool because in slow mo you can see its probably not a shooting star or meteor, and the bug close to the lens theory is debunked at the end when you can clearly see it goes behind the buildings in the shot (some 'expert' ). Neat.

    Doesn't have to be aliens, as people tend to jump to, but quite possibly some high-tech military vehicle. Cool.

    I rather have it be aliens at least that's a viable explanation as to why the Colts don't look like the team we used to know.

    They probably couldn't believe what they were hearing and had to come see it for themselves.....

    "The object is not going behind the cathedral -- it's actually in front of it," Dantonio said. "But because of the saturated CCD [charge-coupled device used in digital imaging], it looks like it's going behind. And when you see those three dots or lights [on the object], I think they're wing beats."

    Are there any example videos of saturated CCD causing this effect that I can look at where it was absolutely the cause, for comparison?

    No idea. It sounds like some technical mumbo-jumbo. Just wanted to indicate that he did seem to have an answer, at least.

    Wrong all accounts.... New Orleans is know for it's walking dead and ghostly orbs. That was just some dead guy's orb shooting by.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    The insect theory is ridiculous, and is a blatant example of a pseudoskeptic attempting to fit the facts to the theory (backwards thinking), rather than the proper methodology of building the theory around the facts.

    With that said, someone suggested that it could be footage of a time-lapsed jet, which seems very plausible to me, especially considering that (at least, it appears to me) that more than one brightly-lit object crosses the sky at various times.

    Assuming it is time-lapsed footage, if the exact level it's been sped-up to was known, it could be slowed-down to a speed which would emulate real-time. That would probably settle things.

    The insect theory...ridiculous.

    Aliens, however, plausible.

    Right.

    At no point did I say that I believe the alien theory, nor that it was plausible. I simply called out a pseudoskeptic (which most alleged skeptics seem to be, sadly) for forwarding a "theory" which contradicted the evidence. That's the antithesis of critical thinking.

    It's probably not be an alien, but it's certainly not an insect.
