The Yankees' brand is so large and powerful that it shouldn't really be a surprise when it is used as a reference point in pop culture or even by clergy. Still, Cardinal Timothy Dolan had a rather unique way of saying he won't be the next pope.

"Listen, I think I got a better chance of taking A-Rod's place than I do of Benedict XVI," Dolan said, according to NY1.

One friendly warning to Dolan if he does replace Rodriguez, don't say: "I'll always be a Cardinal."
