Pope Francis tweeted Sunday morning, just hours before the Jacksonville Jaguars hosted the New Orleans Saints. Because the supreme pontiff accidentally placed a hashtag before “Saints,” the NFL team’s logo auto-populated leaving football fans on Twitter with all the fodder needed on a fall Sunday.
Pope Francis was more than likely referring to the five saints who were canonized during a mass in St. Peters square Sunday afternoon. The tweet however, prompted football fans everywhere to chime in with creative comebacks.
Inadvertent or not, the Saints defeated the Jaguars in Jacksonville, 13-6. After the game, the official Twitter account for the NFL team got in on the action.
The Saints remain atop the NFC South Division having won four straight games without star quarterback Drew Brees. They play in Chicago against the Bears on Oct. 20.
