San Antonio's Newspaper Got Really Weird Today
These crazy finals are leaving fans on both sides praying before tonight's Game 7, but the San Antonio Express-News took it to church in its pages today.
As CopyDesk.org points out, this was a special pullout poster in today's paper:
The full-page pictorial accompanied a story about a group of Catholic nuns praying for the Spurs before every game.
"We want them to win," Sister Rosalba Garcia told the paper. "They have a very open way of thinking and playing the game. They think of each other."
Unfortunately, as far as we know, the Heat does not have a group of nuns reaching out to the big fan upstairs, but that's OK, because the team has Hialeah Heat fan San Lazaro in its corner.
