According to published reports, former NBA star Dennis Rodman will ride through St. Peter's Square in a car similar to the "Popemobile" on Wednesday.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Rodman's press agent, Jules Fieler, claims his client is traveling to Vatican City to campaign for Ghana's cardinal, Peter Turkson.
Dennis Rodman has become somewhat of a Globetrotter this month. Earlier in March, Rodman spent several days in North Korea, getting to know leader Kim Jong Un. Although repeatedly threatening to attack the United States, Rodman says he considers Kim Jong Un a forever friend.
Rodman said he plans to return to North Korea in August to vacation with Kim, who is a diehard basketball fan.
