There’s a online petition to have Pope Francis bless Bradford’s knees
Unless you’ve been spending the summer in Hades with all of those Dallas Cowboys fans, you are surely well aware of Pope Francis’ impending visit to Philadelphia.
The last weekend in September this fall will certainly be an interesting one. And not just because the Eagles take on the New York Jets.
Philadelphians are going Pope crazy. The latest example of that is a Change.org petition for Pope Francis to bless the knees of Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford (clearly God forgot about him for the past few seasons).
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!!!!
There are currently over 250 supporters.
My question is, however, if you want Sam Bradford and the Eagles to win the Super Bowl, wouldn’t a deal with the devil seem more appropriate?
Also, by the time the Pope gets to Philly in September, there’s no assurance Bradford’s knees will still be intact. Say your prayers, Eagles fans. Or don’t? Maybe just sign the petition. Not sure how to get the football gods on our side exactly.
