Florida Gulf Coast has easily put on the most entertaining show of the entire 2013 NCAA Tournament. For starters, they are the first ever 15th-seeded team to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. That alone was probably enough to inspire someone to pay tribute to the team with a tattoo on his forearm, but it was the desire to fulfill a promise that led to a Florida radio host getting his FGCU ink.
103.9 FM DJ Big Mama in Fort Myers shared the photo you see above of his new tattoo on Wednesday. According to the station’s website (via Busted Coverage), Big Mama wanted the Eagles to win so badly that he promised to get a tattoo if they defeated Georgetown in the first round. You can see a video of him getting the tattoo here.
For those of you who don’t know, Dunk City refers to the nickname that FGCU because of the sick dunks like this they have thrown down throughout the tournament. Even the university itself has embraced the tag line.
And that’s not all. Their head coach also has a former supermodel for a wife and a tremendous sense of humor about it. The team has captured the hearts of thousands of people across the country with their up-tempo style and unique postgame celebration antics. The more we discuss it, the more I’m going to want a Dunk City tattoo. Since I don’t know how my wife would react to that, it’s probably best if I stop now.
