Saturday’s wind was WILD! Branches were taken down, trucks were being pushed off the road, and dry erase boards were flying across football fields!
I am the play-by-play announcer for the University of St. Francis football team, and they were playing against Roosevelt University at Memorial Stadium in Joliet on Saturday! That game will be forever known as The Wind Bowl! It was absolutely insane. No one could throw it, kick it or even SNAP it without the ball flying around.
One of the more interesting, and frankly dangerous, moments was when the dry erase board that coaches use on the sideline to diagram plays was picked up by a particularly strong gust and was sent spinning through the air!
If you saw something crazy, I’d love to hear about it! [email protected]
