Pope Benedict XVI is resigning at the end of the month, and Jose Canseco has questions. “What all does the Pope do?” Canseco tweeted in the wee hours of this morning. He followed that up with a series of other Pope questions, such as “Why are all the Popes old men?” He also noted that, when it comes to choosing a Pontiff, “Europe needs our help.”

While not coming right out and saying he was interested in the job, Canseco is showing an unusual amount of interest. He couldn’t be worse than Lance Armstrong, could he? Pope Jose I? He could sign all official Vatican documents “Hugs 4 u.”

As you might imagine, there are a bushel of sports-related Pope tweets today. Let’s take a look at some of them.
