Well football fans, we know who the Pope roots for! It is the New Orleans Saints! Well, not really, but his Twitter account did show some support for the team, in a mistaken type of way!
It appears that the Pope’s official Twitter feed accidentally tweeted support for the team when it tweeted about the canonization of five new saints. With posting a “#Saints” to the tweet, the feed automatically posted the New Orleans Saints emoji in advance of the Saints game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Saint did beat the Jaguars by a score of 13-6, which cause the team to thank the Pope for his support! “Couldn’t lose after this. #Blessed and highly favored,” the team tweeted after the win. Who knew the Pope followed the NFL!
