Pope Francis Is Now a Honorary Harlem Globetrotter

How cool is this?

Pope Francis can now add the title of “Harlem Globetrotter” to his resume after this week. Pope Francis met with the Globetrotters on Wednesday May 6th at St. Peter’s Square, and even received a few lessons on how to properly spin a basketball on his finger. During the meet and greet, the Globetrotters officially bestowed the honor of honorary Harlem Globetrotter to Pope Francis, which he graciously accepted. The meeting also produced one of the better basketball pictures you will ever lay eyes on.

Did we mention that he also got a custom jersey?

Coolest. Pope. Ever.
