The Pope is visiting Philadelphia the last weekend in September, and the Eagles will be visiting the New York Jets. But that might not prevent The Pope from coming into contact with some Eagles players – and according to this online petition – especially Sam Bradford.
The Pope is coming to Philly! Our city! With this Eagles season coming up, a lot of our Super Bowl hopes rely on Sam Bradford’s knees staying healthy. So, with one of the most religious representatives in the world visiting our wonderful place we call home, how about we get him to bless Bradford’s knees during his visit to Philly! 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!!!!
Yeah, there’s only 250 people on board right now, but I’m not so sure this is a bad idea. It actually would probably make me feel a little calmer and if Bradford tears his ACL again, we could blame The Pope and not Chip Kelly. Because in Chip we trust.
That’s to say, if Bradford makes it to the end of September healthy. If not, we may be able to get the Pope to bless Mark Sanchez’s arm and/or decision-making, and Tim Tebow is already good with Him, so we don’t have to worry about him.
