(SmokingGun) The domain name popefrancis.com is owned by a Chicago lawyer who registered the address nearly three years ago, but who today declined to answer questions about his apparent prescience (or luck).

Christopher Connors, 39, appeared taken aback when contacted at his office by a TSG reporter. He declined to answer what led him to register popefrancis.com in April 2010, or what he had planned for the site (which is parked on a Go Daddy server).
