Argentina Pope

Pablo Coronel, stadium manager of the San Lorenzo Football Club, talks with the press in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Coronel said the choice of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a San Lorenzo fan, as Pope might make San Lorenzo the biggest club in Argentina. 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.
