Hand Of Pod 95: The Pope is a San Lorenzo fan, Lanús still lead the way & more

In the ninety-fifth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Joel toast the world’s first Latin American pontiff with a fernet (mate in Joel’s case) even though none of us are Catholic, and discuss what his installment in the Vatican hot seat could mean for the immediate future of his favourite football team, San Lorenzo de Almagro (yes, really). Then we get a bit more serious and discuss Boca Juniors’ continuing travails, Lanús’ and Godoy Cruz’s good start to 2013, River Plate’s recovery from their loss to San Lorenzo in round 4 by beating Colón this last weekend, and plenty more, including lots of lovely listeners’ questions. Enjoy.

As usual,  Mystic Sam’s predictions are over on the HOP blog, and if you want to subscribe to us on iTunes, you can do so here.
