Copa America Is Over But The Final Match Memes Are Still Fire

The Copa América Centenario final between Argentina and Chile didn’t produce any goals in regular or extra time, but it still managed to produce lots of drama. Argentina’s Gonzalo Higuaín missed a one-on-one chance to put his team up early in the match. Then, Brazilian referee Héber Roberto Lopes stole the show from stars Lionel Messi and Alexis Sánchez, handing out several yellow cards and two red cards that left each team with only 10 players. When the game went to penalties, Messi blew his penalty shot, which could have boosted Argentina to victory. After Argentina’s Lucas Biglia also missed his penalty, Chile’s Francisco Silva converted, crowning Chile the Copa América Centenario champs.


At the end of the match, this shot of Lionel Messi crying was EVERYWHERE. This little girl decided to lend him a helping hand:

BTW, it’s photoshopped.


But this is how it began: with yellow card after yellow card from referee Heber Lopes.


It was kinda like having Oprah on the field.


Lopes was handing out so many cards that he became the focal point of the match.


But soon, this missed penalty became the talk of the tourney.


Where did the ball land? Well…


This Twitter user predicted the avalanche of Messi memes.


Chile’s Alexis Sánchez was spotted behind a teary-eyed Messi with a familiar look.


Argentina’s flag was given an emoji update.


And Crying Jordan made his inevitable appearance. On the field…


On the bench…


And on the flag.


A few people switched things up. One went with Crying Messi…


And another with Crying Lebron.


This summed up how hard it is to shake off a tough loss…


And this was a savage description of what a second place team looks like.


And to cap it all off, Pitbull performed at the closing ceremony. Some weren’t down with it:


But wait — there’s more! If you really want to talk about rubbing salt in someone’s wound… this is how Chile’s Alexis Sánchez celebrated:

Pope Francis Says Church Should Apologize “For Having Blessed Many Weapons"

Pope Francis Says Church Should Apologize “For Having Blessed Many Weapons”

In another shockingly progressive move by the Catholic Church, Pope Francis says the church should seek forgiveness from homosexuals.

During his flight from Armenia to the Vatican, a reporter asked Pope Francis if he thought gays deserve an apology from the Church.


“I believe that the church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended, but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons.”

This question comes after German Cardinal Reinhard Marx said the following in the wake of the Orlando shooting.


“The church must say it is sorry for not having behaved as it should many times, many times – when I say ‘the church,’ I mean we Christians, because the church is holy; we are the sinners. We Christians must say we are sorry.”

Surely people will have mixed feelings about these statements.
