Confess It Like Beckham: Vatican May Form Football Team

Now this could be fun:

The Vatican may one day field a football team that could rival the top formations in Italy’s powerful Serie A, the Holy See’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said Sunday.

“I do not preclude the possibility that the Vatican, in the future, could put together a football team of great value, that could play on the same level as Roma, Inter Milan and Sampdoria,” all first division teams, the Cardinal said, according to the Ansa agency.

By “football” of course they mean “soccer.” The Vatican team would be unstoppable, and the future’s looking Rosary. 

Just remember this equation: Pope + scepter + big hat = infallible goalie.
