Ahh yes, the socks. We've heard of their mystical powers and, uh, comfort. And we've read about their more-valuable-than-gold status within Schembechler. So of course Tom needed a pair.
I'd like to thank a certain contributor who was instrumental in putting this thing together and wished to remain anonymous. Happy with the collaboration.
On Thursday Tom discusses the upcoming Sparty game with his little brother.
And then next week we'll unleash the very first...
That's right-- later today I'll be sending out a very special Blockhams strip and some of the more famous members of the Michigan universe will be writing the words for it. To keep it simple, each contributor will be asked to supply 10 words or less to complete the already finished artwork, and I presume that the results should be entertaining to say the least.
Those taking part in the first ever Caption Challenge include: ESPN's Tom Van Haaren aka TomVH (duh!), JustCoverBlog's JamieMac, MLive's Kyle Meinke, The Wolverine's Tim Sullivan, Tremendous's Steve Lorenz (the artist formerly known as Aquaman), The Hoover St. Rag's Craig D. Barker, Maize n Blue Nation's Brad Muckenthaler, Midnight Maize's own The Shredder, and some guys named Seth and Brian that you might have heard of.
I'll work them all up, and we may even have a poll. The winner will receive a free
all-inclusive trip with Charlie Blockham to Ms. Katzenmoyer's office. Stay tuned!
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.
