Pope Francis Says He’s Met Lionel Messi Twice but Has Never Seen Him Play

Pope Francis is a big football fan and has met Lionel Messi twice but despite that, he has never seen the Barcelona master play.

How can that be possible? 

Well, because he hasn’t watched television since 1990. 

He told Argentine newspaper, La Voz Del Pueblo, as per Malaysian Digest, that he gave up television as “a promise to the Virgin of Carmine.”

The report continues:

When asked if he was more a “Messi-style” pope or a “Mascherano-style” one (in reference to the renowned footballer, Lionel Messi, and his Barcelona team-mate Javier Mascherano), the pope said he did not know because he had never seen them play, although he said he had met Messi twice in Vatican.

The Pope is a big fan of Argentine club San Lorenzo and he gets all their results from a Swiss Guard because he has also never used the internet.

Good morning everyone,

It’s another mild start to your day for just about all of us. The typical cold spots are only dropping into the 50s. Expect more clouds as the front closes in.

We’re already into some clouds cover my daybreak for those west. A little fog is possible near the coast this morning too.

A few showers could spark up at really any point today, but the best bet is after 2 p.m. The FutureCast is indicating a solid frontal passage between 7 and 10 p/m. Although the NWS is not placing us in a severe risk, you can never rule it out with a front passing.

act_romegialli Designs Underground Pavilion With Sunken Swimming Pool

When act_romegialli was commissioned to create a pool on the property of an existing 19th century home, the Italian firm pulled out all the stops. Instead of designing your typical in-ground swimming hole, they chose to build an entire underground pavilion to house the sunken body of water.

The residence, which is located in Northern Italy, was originally built in order to complement the natural topography of the land. Not only did act_romegialli provide the layout for the unique pool, but they also crafted an artificial lake to rest in-between the house and the new pavilion. The pavilion can then be accessed via an underground tunnel that connects directly to the home.

White ceramic tiles were chosen to accent the sunken swimming pool as well as to line the interior of the pavilion in order to achieve a sense of continuity amongst the property. This underground wonderland not only houses the pool, but it also features leisure and fitness facilities.
