Pope Benedict XVI is in Madrid on one of his holy jaunts this week and, as a little ‘pre-St Peter palm-greaser’, Real Madrid saw fit to present the pontiff with a signed ‘BENEDICTO 16’ shirt…

Bloody Popes, they always gets the best stuff – funny little cars, funny little hats

    With Mourinho thinking he is god the pope will be really happy with this holy present.

    @Manolo ~ LMAO You are such a loser! You may not realize this, but its not 2002. Eminem is done cleaning out his closet and my big fat greek wedding is over.

    @livinginthepresent: is this the present in an alternate universe where the catholic church is not corrupt and filled with philanderers? also, your points of reference are very child-molester-ish.

    the church will have to sell this jersey to a madrid sports bar to help pay for its defense team. i just want to see the pope seated next to florentino perez at the bernabeu with the hat and jersey on (preferably inside a plexiglas box) before they do.

    He could sell it on eBay…
