Took a look outside Invesco Field at Mile High around 6 p.m. on Thursday in time to catch an astonishing sight: the security-related closure of I-25, seen here. For a moment, I thought I spotted Will Smith strolling the pavement with his dog, but this was no I Am Legend outtake. This was real. Remember the image during the next traffic jam on this stretch of the interstate -- which will probably lock up a few short hours from now. -- Michael Roberts
