But are they Broncos fans?

It has come to my attention that aliens will land in Denver on Friday. Well, not land, but appear on film. Well, not aliens, but something that's hard to easily identify.

All of this is assuming the guy with the film is able to successfully navigate Denver International Airport. But if it pans out, a new Denver City Council committee could change the world. As the Rocky Mountain News put it:

Jeff Peckman, who is pushing a ballot initiative to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission in Denver to prepare the city for close encounters of the alien kind, said the video is authentic and convinced him that aliens exist.

"As impressive as it is, it's still one tiny portion in the context of a vast amount of peripheral evidence," he said Wednesday. "It's really the final visual confirmation of what you already know to be true having seen all the other evidence."

When Peckman went before city officials this month to discuss his proposed ET initiative, he promised to show the video.

He came from another galaxy to hover around the three-point line.

As much as I'd like this to be true, it seems more likely it will be an inspired hoax or just a really cool misunderstanding. Or Shane Battier's head. But if it's ET, I hope his final destination is a place with a little more soul and a little less John Elway.
