While the Pope is out of town, some of his personal security service, the Swiss Guard were around, and they challengerd on the Fighting Irish on the basketball court.

The team did not say who won the scrimmage, but that is not important. What is important is that there are Swiss guard basketball jerseys out there, and they are amazing.
