John Calipari attends the Pope’s congressional address

Kentucky Wildcats head basketball coach John Calipari got in touch with his spiritual side on Wednesday, as he attended the Pope’s congressional address this morning in Washington DC.

It didn’t take long for those viewing the address to spot Coach Cal and photos immediately surfaced.

Coach #Cal is in the House for #PopeFrancis. Pope is the only person who recruits better than Cal .

For those who plan on criticizing the head coach for showing up at the event, well, he doesn’t seem to be bothered.

Please don't hate me for loving the pope. If I get close enough, I absolutely will kiss his ring.
