You have him in a comic in which someone gets hurt, and then he gets hurt? You cursed him!!! Death to Six Zero!!!
The Blockhams in "TACKLING DUMMY"
When we last left off with our heroes...
DESMOND BLOCKHAM WAS IN AN ACCIDENT LAST WEEK
that may or may not have involved, well, a Twosie. A tandem bicycle.
He was then DIAGNOSED WITH A STRANGE CONDITION which
in turn prompted him to attempt to walk on to the Michigan
football team. Here is his tryout...

Yes, we kept him in.
Today's cameos were planned well into last week and were in full pre-production when the news broke yesterday about Jake Ryan's unfortunate injury. After going through the typical AARRGGHH PANIC like the rest of you, I was torn with what to do about it-- should I substitute him with another player, leave it be, or scratch the whole story.
In the end I posed the question on Twitter, and received an overwhelming collective response instructing me to KEEP HIM IN. "HE'S HURT, NOT DEAD," etc. And so here he is. Truly heartbreaking stuff, and I hope his little Blockhamized appearance now serves as a tribute to our temporarily fallen hero. Godspeed, Jake Ryan-- we all love watching you play, big fella.
Friday Fun will probably have something to say about basketball. Dear Lord let it be good.
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every week here at MGoBlog and on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out the Friday Fun, my weekly single panel comic based on trending Michigan events, available on Twitter and the home page every Friday.
If you've been following along, Desmond can no longer "get" hurt. It just looks bad.
Haha, touche, I had forgotten about that.
I would hate to face the collective wrath of MGoBorg if you had been responsible in any way. I was headed out to tap the pines. I used all my pitch during the last era.
He means Jake Ryan. :(
Oh, wow that was so funny! Your attention to detail this week was, dare I say, tremendous. Great work!
The football gods saw this and tore Jake Ryan's ACL.
and Desmond somehow injures Jake Ryan's knee ...
(now we know what happened)
Did he fumble or not? We need a replay. Maybe his "entrails" held on to the damn ball.
The Assistant Coach looks way too much like GREG. Yes, even in a cartoon.
The asst. coach is mattison.
GREG = Greg Mattison
GERG = Greg Robinson
You should take credit (or blame) for this pun, even if you didn't mean it.
Needs more dicks.
