Boston Celtics newest fan: The Pope?

From the Boston Globe's Gary Dzen:
James Pallotta, president of the soccer team AS Roma and a minority owner of the Celtics, presented a Celtics jersey to Pope Francis at the Vatican Wednesday. Pallotta was there to represent Roma in the Coppa Italia, a match pitting the team against city rival Lazio.

They better start selling "The Pope" #1 jerseys at the Garden pro shop.  We've already seen what Celtics uniforms look like for 3 out of 4 of these 1996 Kentucky Wildcats; now there's a "Pope" one too.
