Top 15 "X-Files" Moments in Sports

The X-Files' Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are two iconic television characters that investigate the paranormal. It was awesome to see them be reunited for another season after such a long lay-off in the franchise. It makes you wonder if there’s a real X-Files group in our governments. The department could take the shape of one form or another, hiding in between agencies, always observing, always watching.

If there’s such a division, do they investigate everything? If we knew the answer, we’re pretty sure we would have the “Men in Black” come visit and erase our memories. Yet, even with the threat of having our mind wiped, we human beings are a curious bunch. Ever find yourself up late at night and searching for something paranormal and then you got goosebumps and realized it was a bad idea? We thought you did, so what better way to take a break from our daily lives then to dive into some crazy and spooky moments that have happened in sports. It could be ghosts, UFOs, and pretty much anything Scully and Mulder would investigate on their own.

Yes, we know that many UFO sightings have been debunked. A blimp caused a stir at the 2008 Summer Olympics and a time lapse shot during a New Orleans Saints football game got the attention of alien enthusiasts. We can all use our common sense, but we ask you to throw that out window for one moment and believe in something supernatural. So this list is for all the tin foil wearing, UFO loving, etymology studying people out there. Solidarity can be a great thing so drop the window blinds, close the curtains, and turn off the lights. Once that’s done, put on some of the spookiest music you can find and get ready to believe.

1 A Day to Remember

It’s one of biggest mysteries in sports history. On Oct 27th, 1954, thousands of people saw bright UFOs from the sky during a soccer match between Fiorentina and their rivals Pistoiese in Tuscany, Italy. It was just after half time when the mysterious shinning balls of light could be seen flying over Fiorentina’s Stadio Artemio Franchi. The game literally stopped because of the chaos in the skies. The incident went global and not one organization, country, or person has claimed responsibility for the sightings. One theory floating around is a migration of spiders used their webs to move between locations through the air. Aliens, spiders, or humans, it doesn’t matter, something strange happened that day and it deserves the number one spot.
