Manu Ginobili Thinks He Saw a UFO

Ginobili thought he’d spotted alien aircraft in LA last week, something TMZ turned into a news story today, leading to funny reactions from both Manu and teammate Matt Bonner (and finally: the blog post you’re currently reading.) Journalism! From the Express-News: “On the night of Dec. 1, while the Spurs were in Los Angeles for a game against the Clippers, Ginobili saw what he thought was a single-engine plane in the process of crashing outside the team’s Santa Monica, Calif., hotel. He tweeted about it. He posted video. He forgot about it. Then, Friday morning, TMZ.com picked up on the story, posting video of the moment shot by fans waiting for autographs near the Spurs bus. In it, you can see Ginobili, a Spurs’ security officer and what appears to be a strange light in the California sky. Apprised of the video after shootaround, Ginobili seemed relieved. ‘The good thing is I’m not the only one that saw it,’ Ginobili said. ‘I’m not totally crazy.’ … The best explanation Ginobili has heard for what he saw — besides TMZ’s E.T. theory, of course — involves military exercises at a nearby Air Force base. Or at least, teammate Matt Bonner says, that’s what the government would have us believe. ‘I don’t know  if it’s a government conspiracy and the military is trying to cover it up or what,’ said Bonner,who is not from another planet but is from New Hampshire. It’s entirely possible Bonner has spent too much time watching ‘X-Files’ re-runs. But if the Red Rocket strangely vanishes prior to tonight’s game against Atlanta, you have to wonder if he’s on to something. ‘Or I could have gotten abducted,’ Bonner said.”

    Next batch of wikileaks stuff will involve govt documents about ufos

  • r

    whats wrong with people believing ancient aliens and von danigins book, if you read it, which you probably didnt, he simply asks if aliens had something to do with it, never states it. you probably are in the tea party

  • Mitch

    Hate to break it to the non-believers but extraterrestrial beings (aliens) do exist. The government has done an excellent job at covering up the evidence saying sightings are “swamp gas”, “weather balloons” or whatever.

    65% of sightings can be explained but the other 35% remain unexplained.

    For more information, google “The Disclosure Project”. Wake the heck up people.

  • killilluminati

    The Nephillim are described in The Bible, also. There is also evidence that humanity was created by the Annunaki.
    It is reported that humanity is a genetic experiment that is designed to be a slave race to mine gold for the atmosphere of another planet.
    Shout out to the Earth like planet Gliese…

    @ r, I once went out with a shorty JUST BECAUSE she said she was a Tea Bagger. I didn’t think she was talking about her political views and sh*t…

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    O, if she was a tea bagger, then ‘she’ was probably rupauls cousin. (insert chris bosh joke here). My apologies. It is edgar cayce….. .hossy, phil is serious

  • giv a

    for the idiots that think aliens exist should kill themselves. Esplain why there is no UFO sighting in different parts of the world.

  • http://www.conspiracy.me mitch

    He could have saw the UFO on conspiracy.me or another site like bigfoor911.com while smoking grass.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    I would comment on this, but this skinny gray dude keeps showing up on my balcony late at night. He’s got really intebse eyes too, me scared.

  • EJ

    Why are basketball players and so crazy? Bonner and Philo are good examples.

  • EJ

    It’s just ridiculous, all that Illuminati government conspiracies and everything.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    How many extrasolar planets have we found in the last few years? And thats just in our galaxy. There are billions of galaxies. A couple of jupiters moons and one of saturns are covered in ice and possibly have liquid water. Thats just our solar system. ….. One must be incredibly stupid and/or conceited to think this blue ball contains all the life in the entire universe(multiverse?).

  • EJ

    I agree with Tarzan, but Bonner and a lot of people say that the government is trying to cover up UFOs, like they would’ve seen aliens and stuff. That’s crazy.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Scientologists would have you believe that Aliens exist….for $4 mill. I’d rather keep my money and listen to Bonner and Manu. “Bonner & Manu” – they could get their own show.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    life evolving from non-living matter is a load of dirt… literally?

  • JD

    Has anyone noticed how almost everyone who sees a UFO is a middle aged lonely American man?

  • Justin

    @Mitch…Swamp gas? Weather balloons? Someone’s been watching just a little bit too much Men in Black I think

  • The Philosopher

    I am familiar with the names you posted. You and I seem to be in sync on quite a few things.
    One can argue that the Ancient Pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, etc. were built by the Nephilim giants described in The Bible. If The Bible is true. Evidence suggests that it is. Even if by sinister design.
    When viewing Mount Olympus from a certain angle, it looks eerily like what we like to call a flying saucer.
    Why cannot scientists (why are not they disclosing) tell us why human DNA is fused, or spliced, as some people like to say… like someone came down and altered the DNA structure of humans?

  • The Philosopher

    Now, in The Bible, the Nephilim are described as a race of giants who were of renown, and they mingled with the daughters of men, reproducing. They were also described as having ill intentions. I am sure that many of us know this. So, could it be possible that these creatures of “renown” still exist? I mean, they would have a lot in common with people who are “the powers that be”. It has been reported that all of the U.S. presidents are related, even if indirectly. Is that by design, if true?

  • http://google c_cantrell

    it is believed by many that the nephilim were the third of the angels (fallen angels) who were kicked out of heaven along with lucifer.. and that they mingled with the daughters of men and that the result was giant offsprings such as galiath.. and think back to the promised land that the israelites were sent to scout out and bring back a report on.. they came back and told everyone that the promised land was occupied by giants and 8 out the 10 scouts said it was impossible to overcome the giants

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    You both are a bit correct and yet incorrect – The nephilim, were the offspring of the women and the angels (that took the likeness of man…). Not the angels themselves. The world became filled with violence, as the bible explains it and so God brought about the flood and the destruction of the ungodly. The nephilim died in the flood but these bad angels (they get called demons nowadays) left their material/fleshly bodies and went back to the spirit realm. The book of revelation talks about Satan and these bad angels have since been cast out of heaven and are confined to the realm of the earth again; that took place in 1914. Hence WWI.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    dacre needs to be slapped back in to reality. im not buying all this giants came from angels fn our women. please.

  • The Philosopher

    Please go on about what took place in 1914 with the cast out angels.

  • EJ

    What the hell are you guys talking about??? Man, like I said a lot of basketball fans are crazy.

  • PlanetAsia14

    @Kap: Agreed. That show really does make you second guess.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    well im not incorrect in what i said but i would like for you to continue on with what your saying it is interesting.. and for those of you who dont buy it, jus crack open a bible my friends.. it is in there i promise

  • the truth

    Watch history’s ancient aliens on Youtube. Also watch the disclosure project and the recent UFO nukes conference on youtube. This ufo/alien thing is real folks. I know it seems like a big joke made up by freaks, but it isn’t that at all. FWIW, I’ve seen one these crafts up close myself three years ago. The damn thing was about the size of 4 semi trucks and it made no sound at all. It hovered just above the tree’s height and gave off a very intense bright light (brighter than a lightening strike). After that experience, I’ll never doubt this subject again.
