Pope Benedict XVI to Join New Orleans Saints Broadcast Team

New Orleans, La. - The National Football League today gave their nod of approval to an announcement of a tentative agreement with Joseph Ratzinger to do color commentary for the New Orleans Saints 2013 season on Fox Sports Network. 

The Network stressed the deal was a great move for all involved and welcomed to their broadcast lineup the former pope's enthusiasm for the team and knowledge of the game. 

Ratzinger, an avid NFL football fan and a rabid Saints fanatic since their Super Bowl Win, told Middle Finger News his Sundays have been quite busy for the last few years and he hasn't had the time he had wished for to watch his two favorite sports on television, the other being the NASCAR Cup Series.

If all goes as expected, Ratzinger will divide his air time between the NFL Today Pre-Game show, the Saints game broadcast and the Saints Vatican Radio simulcast and post game rap up.

The New Orleans Saints Home Office was ecstatic at the news and the all of Bourbon Street is in a race to come up with a signature drink named after the Saint's new favorite son.
