And what a squad they made.

Earlier on Wednesday, the pope was greeted like a rockstar by thousands of fans as he drove through the D.C. streets.

Meanwhile, at the basilica eager crowds had to be kept back with fencing normally reserved for MAJOR EVENTS.

As a committed fan, it's important you show up wearing the team colors.


Enjoy the big day, ladies!
