You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

UAB Student Life


Friday, Apr 20, 2007 from Vestavia Hills, Alabama

For a few more days while on the invasion I get to spend some more time at a university. What can I say, I’ll never have enough university life. I can’t get enough of the atmosphere and hanging out and visiting and seeing how it all compares to Michigan State. This time it’s the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

After a lazy day the night turned busy. Lauren, Jenna, Ben and I headed to the Alpha Omicron Pi intramural softball game. Mostly I just wanted to get up and start playing myself since I haven’t had much physical activity on this trip. A few pictures to come soon!

It was off to the dorms! A late night meal in the cafeteria while visiting and the girls gawking at the basketball players lasted until midnight. MSU should take a few pointers. This little part of the caff is open until 2am serving basics like burgers and chicken fingers. It’s a great little place to hang out, more like a little café or diner.

The real highlight of the night came at around 2am or so. Ben and I were playing Madden on PlayStation. I’m a rookie. I’ve played it once or twice, the last time being in Loup City, NE with Mitchell and his friends. Once again, there I was getting beat the entire game. At the beginning of the 4th quarter I believe the score was 31 to 20. Well, I was just warming up. In the 4th quarter I would outscore Ben 30 to 7 and come back for an unpredictable victory after a safety, fumble, and last minute hail marry just to rub it in. Good game Ben, good game!

It would be my second night staying in a dorm room on the trip and yet again I slept in three different places in three different days. It’s adding up!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed having Justin as a part of the family for the short time he was here. We had a hard time letting him go. I hope he gets the pictures on here soon! :-) It was very nice talking to you on Sunday! I hope all is well in Michigan!
