Is This A Bad Sign?

Is it a bad thing when you read the headline "Cardinals Meet to Advise Pope" and begin wondering how Tony La Russa pulled that off?

On the contrary, it's a good sign. Because you know what it means...

It totally makes sense. No sport is more spiritual than baseball.

Also, if I recall correctly, the Pontiff was working on his latest Encyclical, Ab Bonitas Sui Moribundus Interstringo or "On the Morality of the Suicide Squeeze".

Also, the Popes often have strong allegiances to a particular team. John Paul II frequently referenced the Angels in his homilies, and John Paul I, in his brief time as Pope, was visited by several Padres. Additionally, the Church is known to have an official position against the Devil Rays and White Sox.
