James Pallotta, who is president of the Italian soccer club A.S. Roma, made a visit to the Vatican on Wednesday in advance of his team’s Coppa Italia final this weekend against Lazio. During the trip he met with pope Francis and presented him with a jersey for his soccer club, but being that he is also a minority owner of the Celtics, he of course offered up a custom Celtics jersey as well. Pretty surreal and awesome images.
