IFWT_Bradford Pope

With Nick Foles gone, the Philadelphia Eagles are putting all their hopes on quarterback Sam Bradford.  Unfortunately serious knee injuries have sidelined Bradford twice over the last two seasons, so Eagles fans aren’t taking any chances with their new quarterback.

petition began over the weekend, calling on Pope Francis to bless Bradford’s knees when he stops in Philadelphia on Sept. 26 and 27 as part of a weeklong visit to the United States.

Fans came out in full force, with nearly 2,000 people signing their names by Tuesday afternoon.

Here’s the transcript from the petition:

The Pope is coming to Philly! Our city! With this Eagles season coming up, a lot of our Super Bowl hopes rely on Sam Bradford’s knees staying healthy. So, with one of the most religious representatives in the world visiting our wonderful place we call home, how about we get him to bless Bradford’s knees during his visit to Philly! This town deserves a Super Bowl, and a healthy Bradford is the only way we will have a parade down Broad Street! Please sign this petition and Go Eagles and Welcome to Philly, Pope Francis!!!!

It’s funny but I’m sure the Pope has more pressing matters.
