Illegal sport where the player's main aim is to tackle the pope to the ground. Bonus points are awarded for taking down his entourage. The sport reached its peak when Susanna Maiolo tackled Pope Benedict XVI before the Christmas Eve Mass in 2009 - taking down three others. Two more joined the pile to assist the Pope, scraping her a final score of 280.
Pope knocked down= 50 pts
other knocked down = 10 pts
score is multiplied by total amount of people in pile
people who aren't knocked down but end up in the pile are worth 0 points, but are added to the multiplier
