Habemus Papam, Habemus Soccer Fan

Yesterday, Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina became Pope Francis I. Francis is the first Jesuit Pope as well as the first South American Pope. Sports Illustrated’s Bryan Graham tweeted today that Francis is not only a supporter of the Argentine soccer team Club AtlĂ©tico San Lorenzo de Almagro, but he is a card-carrying member in the club.

With the Pope as their number one fan, does San Lorenzo get to be dubbed “God’s Team?” Also, if they win the league, do they get to visit Pope Francis in the Vatican like an American team would visit the White House?

I bet Pope Francis is a face painter.
