Flags from all nations were flying in St. Peter’s Square Wednesday as Catholic Cardinals selected their new pope. Even the Cougar nation was represented, at least if you believe this picture is real.
The shot of the WSU flag flying outside the Vatican in Rome is making the rounds of the Internet. It’s not totally unbelievable. After all, the Crimson colors have flown at every ESPN College Gameday for nine years and the Masters, according to Craig Powers over at SB Nation’s CougCenter.
While Powers is dubious, you can’t dispute it’s pretty clever. So props to @RachaelHansen1 for posting.
