Nah, couldn't be.

Yep .. gotta' go with this. We don't know if the fella was making a prediction or not. But the more likely thing is that he was casting his vote (so to say) for who he wanted as pope. There was a lot of that going on around the Vatican before the conclave.

I have a radical idea. Maybe it says France.

As for this man, there could be a chance he is simply Argentinian or a fan of Francis and wanted him to become the next pope. No big deal.
