Secret from the conclave?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 15, 2006

American football fans probably noticed this story already, but I confess that I've only just now noticed it.

Possible headlines:

Pope gives offense to Cardinals
Cardinals drafted Pope
Pope was 3rd choice
Pope surrounded by weapons, Cardinals say

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I am so glad Pope did not come from Wake Forest, the Demon Deacons! Or, if he wanted to play baseball Pope might have attracted interest from the Padres.

    Pope can't help Cardinals defeat Saints.
