Am I the only person that detects more than a little Kipling's "White Man's Burden" in this relationship?

That time of year. Keep reading in the next few weeks to see what
kind of job Glenn has lined up for his youngest son, and the
adventures that will follow as a result.
On Thursday we'll catch up with young Charlie, still struggling
with his recent Involuntary Spartafication.
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 our newest
feature, Friday Roughs, a spontaneous low-end comic based on trending
Michigan events, available on Twitter and Facebook every Friday.
No you are not. I am rooting for Yesh to be one of those A Beautiful Mind roommates, i.e. Des's hallmates are seeing him speak to an imaginary person this whole time (that at least would explain how Yesh got student tickets their freshman year when he didn't even know there was a football team until move-in day). The family mania has pushed Des so far that his mind created Yesh as someone he can project his fandom on, after realizing most freshmen at Michigan don't want to talk about the football team all the time.
Considering all of the walking stereotypes he could have roomed with at Michigan (the BAMN member, the crazy evangelical, the frat guy, the Daily guy, the industrial stoner, the gunning for the B-School dude, the LGBT dude, the Young Republicans dude, the Ron Paultard dude, the plays the stock market dude, or even an actual member of the team). Perhaps there is a real Yesh who asked to transfer rooms after the first week, and got moved into a room with Super Christian Guy. He gets preached to much less now.
So it's just him imagination that has the overly paternalistic view of minorities. I like it.
with at Michigan(...).
I love the list. I had super christian guy and frat guy as roomates..
Could we get a Kipling reference on a comic strip about Michigan football.
So we'll see what kind of job Des will have over the summer. Will we also get a glimpse into life without Michigan sports in India for Yesh? Maybe next season will see the formation of an IM cricket league??
Sidenote: Apparently, there is an american college cricket league
and many teams, including msu, osu, Minny, Iowa, Indiana, Northwestern, Ball State, and VT participate. So yeah - Michigan Cricket!
You have to remember that India really only has Cricket and F1... maybe compeditive fasting. Those are not sports for a real man. Good on ya Desmond.
