Jim Harbaugh met Pope Francis and gave him a Michigan helmet and some Jordans


Just what His Holiness wanted: a brand-new pair of Air Jordans.

Pope Francis can now hoop it up whenever he wants courtesy of Jim Harbaugh, who is busy leading his team's trip to Rome, where the Michigan Wolverines have been practicing and soaking in the culture this spring.

Harbaugh got the trip's best picture, though, when he got to meet Pope Francis, and the Michigan head coach added a new lid to the pope's always-impressive collection of headwear.

Harbaugh handed the pope a Michigan football helmet and a pair of Jordan shoes, one of the most terrific college football photos imaginable.

Harbaugh described the pope's reaction.

Great stuff. And maybe now the Wolverines will have a little holy luck on their side this fall.
