Here at World of Sport we have seen all kinds of wacky tales over the years, but this might just be one of the craziest.
Because a random punter has decided to get a tattoo of Chicago Bulls point guard Nate Robinson across a sizeable expanse of his back - and it isn't the most artful effort.
A few weeks ago, Ivan Garcia tracked down his hero on Twitter and asked: "If I get a tattoo of your photo, send me your shirt?"
The fan did not get a response to his question, but that, it seems, did not in any way deter him from holding up his end of the bargain in pursuit of his dreams. Yes: he went and got the tattoo.
It is unclear whether Mr Garcia is a fan of Chicago, having elected to have Robinson wear a New York Knicks jersey, the team he left three years ago.
What's more, the ball he is holding looks more like something you would carry on the rugby field at Twickenham than at Madison Square Garden.
It might also seem a pretty serious commitment to make when you don't even know for sure if the player is going to give you any recognition. But, luckily for Ivan, the NBA star gave the intrepid ink-stained fan a public shoutout:
"Wow bro thats love ... ur a true fan," the NBA star tweeted.
But was it a good likeness? What do you think?
