Ramble of the Day
International tournaments bring an increased set of eyes, and without that, we may not have found out that an Italy player has a bunch of Madagascar characters tattooed on his arms.

The player is Francesco Acerbi, and that is seemingly all we know for now. I would love to know more, though. I completely understand Acerbi might have a very boring answer to this question — it could be as simple as “I like the movie.” It’s such an unconventional choice, though. It requires explanation, not because he’s done a horrible deed but because it’s unusual. I just need to know.
tl;dr: Francesco Acerbi has Madagascar characters tattooed on his arms, and I would love to know why.
