to play football, not to play trumpet
It's been awhile since we've had an off-topic music thread (and switching it up from the drinking threads), so here goes:
I'm on a huge Dawes, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Alabama Shakes kick.
What is everyone listening to on this fine Friday?
Today in a womans 100m dash heat, there were runners from both Libya and Afganistan. Neither woman qualified for the next round, but both have opened doors for girls and women in both countries, it was very cool to see.
Anyway, here is the thread for Olympic discussion, with spoilers.
Not a lot to follow so far this morning (edit: Field Hockey's blue and pink field is hurting my eyes), but this afternoon the pixies start flipping again, and some big races at the pool later.
A couple of weeks back there was a thread about new T-shirt ideas and some seemed pretty cool. So, after Denard delivered the keynote speech at media days, I had an idea for one:
Blue shirt with Maize lettering, "CHOICES." (with the period)
Thought I'd throw it out there for comment or other ideas...

Here's the thread for today for any/all news as it arrives.
ALL CHOKED UP

As I said last week... somewhere, I'm lookin' to start wrapping up the various storylines and daytime-television-drama stuff that Michigan's favorite partisan illustrated family has been up to. Today's strip is the first step in aligning things back to relevant happenings of that glorious thing called Michigan Football. Fall camp starts next week, and the season is about a month away. THE SEASON!!
I've already taken The Blockhams to places I've never imagined-- the laundry room, a psychiatrist's office, heaven-- but I've yet to be able to draw this thing during a game week. And I'm really looking forward to it.
On Thursday we'll talk BBQ.
Also, for those of you that aren't on Twitter, I have some good advice for you if you ever decide to join up: Draw Shane Morris doing anything, and watch the world embrace you. Srsly... this thing wasn't necessarily viral but it came darn close. Below is my FridayRough drawing five days early as I did my part for the war effort:
I'll most likely have it in color for Friday.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every Tuesday here at MGoBlog,
and at least every Thursday on its official home page. Also, don't forget to
check out Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
