Pope Francis is making his way to Philadelphia in September and Eagles fans are looking to take full advantage of his visit.
Eagles fans started a petition on Change.org for his holiness to bless the knees of oft-injured quarterback Sam Bradford. The former Rams quarterback is coming off a pair of torn ACLs over the past two seasons and fans are hoping for a change of luck.
A part of the online petition reads “This town deserves a Super Bowl, and a healthy Bradford is the only way we will have a parade down Broad Street! Please sign this petition and Go Eagles and Welcome to Philly, Pope Francis!!!!”
Upon finding out the news, Bradford seemed open to the idea of having Pope Francis bless his knees. “If I got to meet the pope, I think that would be pretty cool. If he wanted to bless my knees, I’d be all for it, I guess.”
Bradford is going to need more than a blessing from the High One to get the Eagles to the Super Bowl.
One thing is for sure. The Pope hasn’t watched TV since 1990 so there is a real chance he will no clue what anyone is talking about should this even reach his quarters.
Good job, good effort Philly.
