I think it's so interesting when a new pope is chosen.  On the radio this morning, they were talking about a site that was listing the odds for pope, his papal name, and other things.  http://www.paddypower.com/bet/novelty-betting/current-affairs/pope-betting

The site is giving 9/4 odds to Archbishop Angelo Scola of Italy.  I wonder how they're coming up with these statistics and if they're at all accurate.

In Canada, everyone is pulling for Cardinal Ouelette of Montreal.  I don't know where those odds come from, but I do think a pope from our side of the pond would be fun.

Express!
