Twitter lifts the veil on these sisters full of humor, faith and sort of sporting knowledge.

Yesterday’s Super Bowl fever spread throughout the country, as well as to various convents, with a surprising trend — the #SuperBowlintheConvent.

The hashtag invited various religious to give their own running commentary on the sporting event. And quite honestly, the different results are worthy of their own championship trophy.
