The new Pope, Francis I, Is A San Lorenzo Fan


Today, there was white smoke in the air. Whether you were interested or not, we found out the new Pope is Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio. We also found out that he loves the footy, thanks to the almighty power of the internet.

As Dirty Tackle explains, "The Buenos Aires club wasted no time in promoting that fact via their Twitter account, sharing an undated picture of Pope Francis holding up the San Lorenzo crest and a scan of his club membership card (both below), which shows that he’s been a member since 2008. San Lorenzo also count actor Viggo Mortensen among their biggest supporters.”

It’s also worth noting that the Pope’s beloved club is totally predictable. I mean, San Lorenzo were named after a local priest (Father Lorenzo Massa). Lorenzo welcomed children to play football in his church’s yard, so they wouldn’t have to do so with the danger in the street. It all comes full circle, in a way.
