Biggest fan? Big Nasty

By DARRELL FRY

© St. Petersburg Times, published January 18, 2001


Keith Kunzig of Largo has been voted into the Hall of Fans, a national group that honors the most zealous NFL supporters.

Kunzig, honored at the Bucs' home finale against St. Louis, was given a commemorative plaque identical to one that will be displayed in the Hall of Fans exhibit at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Kunzig was chosen because at every home game he wears an elaborate Bucs costume, which includes painting his face in the team's colors and going by the name Big Nasty.
