As the Super Bowl nears everyone is deciding which team they will root for to make it to the big game. Sometimes it's based on nothing more than which mascot is better, but sometimes it's based on your hometown roots. That's the case for Bishop Thomas Tobin.

PROVIDENCE — A New England area religious leader is throwing his faith behind Pittsburgh in an upcoming playoff game.
