While speaking at Winnipeg Stadium, I'm sure Mother Teresa had no idea she was standing directly below a Beer company's promotion for the football player of the game. The sign was actually not as close as it appears. I had to lie on my back to create the illusion that the sign was much lower. Yes, photography does lie!
