What a super blessing!



If one of the Super Bowl teams has to throw a Hail Mary today, they'll have a good friend in the stands.

In fact, it's the entire sport's best friend, according to ABC's Good Morning America - which dubbed Sister Mary John Tintea America's No. 1 football fan.

Imagine that: ABC-TV went looking for the most rabid fan in the nation - and came up with a kindly nun who ministers to patients in St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital.

And what a superb choice! A fanatic Indianapolis Colt fan, Sister Mary keeps the football season alive all year with her Colt-blue paraphernalia, her good cheer - and the patients' and staff's "Go Colts!" offered in return.

We think it's wonderful! To reward a woman who is such a super blessing with such a blessing: She gets a trip for two to Detroit, heavenly accommodations, tickets to the game - and even dinner with Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

What goes around comes around, sister. Bless you.
