"I do not preclude the possibility that the Vatican could in the future put together a soccer team of great value that could play on the same level as Roma, Inter Milan, Genoa or Sampdoria. Just think of all the Brazilian or African students who attend seminaries or pontifical universities. We could put together a magnificent team."
-- Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican's Secretary of State, on the Vatican's goal to field a team to rival the great teams of Italy's Serie A. Cardinal Bertone, 72, is a Juventus fan and former television commentator. (London Times)
