Vatican Considers Fielding a Football Team

The Vatican apparently is considering fielding a football team (or soccer team for all you Americans reading) that would compete in the Italian Serie A.


"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, said Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Holy See's Secretary of State.

One thing is certain: the team would have two loyal diehard fans in Boney and Jimbo.
