Religion News Service has taken a page from the NCAA's "March Madness" tournament, setting up "Pope Madness" brackets to see which cardinal may become pope.

They're calling it "Sweet Sistine."

The contest started out with 16 cardinals. Readers have since narrowed the choice down to two: Marc Ouellet of Canada and John Onaiyekan of Nigeria.
