Pope Francis Cat Naps While Praying-
A confession from Pope Francis is creating a lot of buzz. He says he sometimes falls asleep while praying. The pontiff said on Catholic TV 2000 yesterday that "When I pray, sometimes I fall asleep." Sometimes the holy father's expression turns very grave when he prays, often bowing his head and closing his eyes for long periods. The 80-year-old pope is usually sacked out by 9 pm and rises at 4 am. Vatican sources say the pope's fast-paced schedule is only possible because he sets his head down for a snooze after lunch.
The World Series wasn't the only loss Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig suffered last night.
While the Astros were busy taking away his dream of being a champion, a thief was busy inside his Los Angeles-area house taking his jewelry. Police say the burglar broke into his home through a window, which triggered an alarm. The police arrived, but the thief had already made off with some jewelry. Security cameras inside the house recorded the crook so police should be able to catch him.
Puig left Dodger Stadium after the game and arrived home, where he had to cap off his bad night by talking to police.
Talk About It:
- This is actually the second time he was robbed this year. Burglars swiped $500,000 worth of jewelry from his other home back in March.
- What a horrible way to end a bad night.
- He obviously needs to do more to secure his homes.
