Mike Lantry, 1972

AN ACUTE CASE OF MICHIGANITIS
(Click the image to view full size)
Soo, yes... the biggest February weekend in recent Michigan history is in the books,
and like the rest of us, Tom Blockham is still recovering. If you think MICHIGANITIS
is a fabrication... just ask your wife on a Saturday morning, or your boss on a Friday
afternoon. It's real, and it was a true PANDEMIC Saturday and Sunday.
May it show no mercy in 2012.
For those of you that publish blogs, contribute stories, or otherwise comment on the
goings on of all things Michigan, you can probably agree that it was no small feat trying
to find the right words to do it justice. I can handily say this was not my first attempt
at addressing The Best Weekend Ever in the comic strip medium-- but in the end it
just came back to the characters, which I hope you've enjoyed getting to know better.
Speaking of which... new character alert for Thursday's strip. Stay tuned.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs every Tuesday here at MGoBlog, and at least every
Thursday on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out our newest
feature, Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
Follow THE BLOCKHAMS™ on Twitter at @theblockhams.
I'd also like your collective help! I'd like to invite everyone to
LIKE THE BLOCKHAMS™ on Facebook at www.facebook.com/theblockhams.
If I break 250 by Friday I'll promise an extra strip that day on top of the Friday Rough!
LIKE THE BLOCKHAMS™ on your own Facebook page today and get updates
for every strip as soon as it's posted. Thanks again and GO BLUE!
