Posting Up With Jenna - Season 2 // Feb. 4, 2010
The night before the game, everyone got to go shopping at the greatest place on earth, the Mall of America (I know I'm being biased, but love it there!) ☺ Everyone loved the mall because it is tax-free. Everyone had bags and bags of clothing and I just started laughing because they usually tease me about Minnesota and that there is nothing to do there, but it looks like they were happy from the trip with loads of good stuff!
While everyone was shopping, Coach Law gave me the chance hang with the family. I only live about seven blocks away from the mall so I was so happy to be home. My uncle came from all the way New Hampshire to see me play. I haven't seen him since I was in middle school and I don't think he has ever seen me play, so that was really cool. It was so good to spend time with him and see him really enjoy himself.
Playing at Minnesota for the last time was bittersweet. I enjoyed every moment of it. I love coming home to know that people have still followed me over my four years at Illinois. When I was walking into the arena and people were saying `Welcome home Jenna' and when I was announced for the starting line up some Gopher fans still cheered for me as well. It just gave me a good feeling to know that they still care even though I'm not a Gopher. I had a lot of friends and family there to watch and I was especially excited to see my AAU coach that I haven't seen in a long time. He is always coaching and busy and I am not home a lot, so it was good to give him a hug. I also learned that he texts now, so I am sure we will keep in touch more. I'd like to thank for everyone that came out and supported me on my last trip back home!

I also got to talk to Coach Zook when I went over there. He is a very cool guy and always is so nice. He comes to support our team and he said he is going try and make it to a game now before I graduate since he'll have more time after signing day. It's always nice to see him and his players show up and support us.
That's my life in a nutshell! We are in Purdue for a game tonight! Lets get another win! Then on Sunday we play Indiana at home. MAKE SURE TO COME OUT IN PINK SUNDAY!!!!!!
