God Bless College Football...Please?

The pope is coming to America! Pope Benedict XVI is visiting America this week and will conduct mass in Yankee Stadium on Sunday. According to several published reports, he is not allowed to drive his "Popemobile" on the "sacred" turf of Yankee Stadium. Being a college football fan, I could think of another sports venue that would not care one bit and have made more American Catholics happy. Seems to me Touchdown Jesus could use some love these days. Maybe the "mobile" driving over the soil of ND Stadium would awaken the ghosts of Irish past? How about a blessing on Coach Weis and Jimmy Clausen? Don't you think that he owes it to the world to have mass on this sacred field?
