Argentine Pope

A view of the San Lorenzo Football Club's Pedro Bidegain Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Club sports director Mario Gallego said he is happy of the conclave's choice of Pope, and that the new Pope should be proud to be a San Lorenzo fan, not the other way around. Bergoglio was elected in a surprise choice to be the new leader of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the name Francis I and becoming the first non-European pontiff in nearly 1,300 years.
