The Blockhams in "TRAINING CAMP"

2-a-days.  Tackling sleds.  Hoarse position coaches.  Camp.

You guys feel that?  That sensation, that spark deep inside your soul that's suddenly come out of hibernation that will continue to grow over the next three weeks?  That sense of youthful glee associated with winged helmets and autumn afternoons? That feeling of pride that makes you want to run to the closet right now and pull something maize and blue on you, even if you're already wearing it anyway?

Hail to the winningest program in college football
and what only it can stir inside us this time of year.

On Thursday Tom checks in with his anonymous psychiatric professional.


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.

...use the colloquial if incorrect "there's" instead of "there are". I'm sure that's how Tom speaks. Also, as a lefty myself it's nice to see that Charlie is a southpaw.

I particularly enjoyed the dramatic pause right after the Hoke point - it made the last cell that much more poignant to me. Great work!

Further, like MGoShoe, I am also a southpaw and was excited to see that Charlie is as well. Something also makes me think that Tom will be watching CTK videos and presser clips at some point during this upcoming appointment...

Today's storyline actually broke off into three separate ones as I thought about how the mental health community would view our fanatici-- err, I mean devotion to UM Football. The finished product was what I originally set out to create, but you may see some of the others soon enough. Go Blue!
