It is not the sort of head-wear you’d expect the Pope to sport. But Pope Benedict XVI broke with tradition by wearing a baseball cap as he went for a stroll around his summer residence on Sunday.The Pontiff looked like he would be more comfortable walking through the mean streets of an inner-city than a quiet garden in rural Italy.
He even colour-coordinated his new cap, perhaps mindful of the need for it to blend in with his white robe and white hair.
The 83-year-old donned the trendy hat as he walked around his estate in Castel Gandolfo, south of Rome.
The cap also served the more useful purpose of keeping the hot summers heat off the Pope’s head.
When asked why the Pope went with the all white no logo ball cap, he replied he was keeping his options open until he learned which team LaBron was going with. He said he didn’t want to bias King James.
Bennie said his newly acquired Miami Heat hat with the number 16 was back in the Popmobile.. The Pope joked that both he and Pau Gasol of the Lakers are number 16.. The Pope added Gasol is taller. but I have a higher reach.
