The Pope Was Rocking Some Cubs Gear This Week (Pic)

Something tells me the Argentinian pope, residing in the Vatican, probably doesn’t have a favorite baseball team. So why not just root for the Cubs like everyone else?

Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupitch is set to become a Cardinal this weekend (not the St. Louis or Arizona kind, either) and he took the opportunity to give his holiness a signed ball and a hat.

Because famous people are weird, here’s a picture of Pope Francis holding the hat like it’s an alien relic, instead of just putting it on.

Take a second to look at him holding it, then spend the next 20 minutes wondering who all those weirdos in black suits are, staring at him.
