FRANCISCAN NUN JOINS GREEN BAY PACKERS' PLAYERS FOR COIN TOSS
In the spirit of the Superbowl celebrations today, we thought we'd share this fun photo from the Catholic News Service photo archives.
Franciscan Sister Sean Marie Tobin is all smiles as she joins Green Bay Packers' players on the turf at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis., January 12, 2008 for the coin toss. Sister Tobin won a Packers' playoff-ticket essay contest with an entry about how she has been a Packers' fan since 1945. Her prize was to serve as an honorary "G-Force Captain," representing all Packers' fans at the Jan. 12 playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.
