I was in the middle of the Beach Bash here at the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl.
We had a big dance contest between Florida International and Toledo. I was in the middle of that, helping judge it, and ultimately, I was the one that had to give out the trophy. It was a lot of fun, a lot of excitement, and yes, Florida International made up for last night's loss to Toledo in the pinball contest and won the dance-off. So they're tied 1-1, leaving the big football game this Friday.
It was a phenomenal event with the two teams on the beach here in the beautiful Bahamas right by the ocean, and we had a great time.
So again, looking forward to the game coming up on Friday, but so far, Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl is a phenomenal success. We're excited about it, and looking forward to more.
• Editor's Note: Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig Johnson is sending a daily journal from Nassau, Bahamas, in advance of the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl, to be played Friday. The village spent $300,000 to sponsor the college game, which uses the village's business marketing tagline.
