The next pope with that name would be Sixtus the sixth (Sixtus sextus in Latin), which would probably give the media fits as they try to say it.


Sixtus the Sixth...
Pope #66............

Hey, Cardinal Wuerl is in the conclave, so there is a possibility of a yinzer pope.

Plan the parade.


I like Ouellet on the wing*

He brings size, is an above average skater when compared to his peers, and probably has the most experience at the wing. Unfortunately he's also injury prone.

* - That may be the first (and possibly last) time that sentence is ever typed in this forum.

The real question is, IF it is the guy from Pittsburgh, do yinzers turn on him for leaving? or if he isnt chosen are yinzers angry at the disrepect?

Wuerl had no say over whether or not he stayed in Pittsburgh. You pretty much go where you are assigned.


But I doubt people would think about that before complaining.

Rob Rossi reporting his sources are saying that Donald Wuerl as pope is close to a "done deal".

I keep thinking of that scene from Revenge of the Nerds but instead of saying 'bush' Booger is saying 'Pope'
