That's too bad. I was really pulling for Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, Paolo Maldini, Roberto Baggio, or Alessandro Del Piero to become pope.
This guy's father, I hear, was an immigrant from Italy. So you've still got a pope from Italian descent.
Presumably he's equally fluent in Spanish and Italian.
You know what, the Most holy family monastery website is already exposing Pope Franciscus as an anti-Pope.
