San Antonians have looked up to an Argentinian with a ring for a decade. Manu Ginobili. We can graciously welcome Pope Francis.

I'm thinking the best race car driver is Tom Kristensen, 8 times Le Mans winner so far.

Speaking of Messi, Barcelona and Argentina. I was in Barcelona a few years ago with my then Argentine girlfriend where we found a restaurant called La Concha. The best part being that it was a Argentinian asado restaurant. Gotta love that humor

We have a queen in Holland: Máxima.
now, we have an Argentine Pope.

Next steep: the forum, ja ja ja...

Congratulations and good luck Jorge Mario Bergoglio!, although I'm atheist.
Do not forget the asado and the dulce de leche.

I too am an atheist, but the news made me very happy, the new Pope has part of his family in my town, they meet every year to eat "Bagna Cauda" a traditional Italian food that I never dared to try...

The most important thing is that he is a good man.

Best football player in the world is Joe Flacco, silly boys. Nothing Argentinian about him.

I think he might not be a footballer but a hand egg player.
