Eye View Sports, Pope Waited For “The Decision”.

July 27, 2010

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.

July 15, 2010

MADRID – The Madrid Zoo said Thursday that it has made an offer to buy Paul, the octopus who became a pop culture sensation by correctly predicting the outcome of as many World Cup matches as he has legs – all seven of Germanys games  plus the Spain-Netherlands final.

The zoo said it made the offer after receiving hundreds of requests from Spaniards for Paul’s transfer from a German aquarium after Spain won the World Cup on Sunday.

Zoo spokeswoman Amparo Fernandez said an unspecified amount of cash was offered for the purchase of Paul, now a hero in Spain, which went wild after it won its first World Cup ever.

“We hope that within the next few days we will be able to confirm news that the admirable Paul will be part of the club of the most loved and charismatic animals of the Madrid Zoo,” said a statement from the zoo.
