Talk about jumping on the Florida Gulf Coast bandwagon with both feet.
DJ Big Mama of Fort Myers, FL, radio station WXKB-FM said on his show that if FGCU won its opening tournament game, he’d get a tattoo of the school logo. DJ Big Mama stayed true to his word after the Eagles’ Cinderella run to the Sweet Sixteen. His new ink consists of “Eagles” written over a basketball, with the school’s bird head logo above the text and “Dunk City, FL” running around the ball.
Before the tournament, very few people outside of Fort Myers had even heard of Florida Gulf Coast. Now people are getting FGCU tattoos and Fort Myers’ website has #DunkCity running at the top. What a difference a week can make.
