Bono is 1,000:1 to become the next Pope, but he's only 750:1 to be the next Anti-Christ
Explain that Wabbit!
Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

Just love how they reason... "Brazil, biggest catholic community in the world? Lets give them an Argentinian Pope, because Brazilians love Argentinians, right?" Biggest troll in a long time. Two thumbs up for you.
