I want have SQL send me a message whenever we have a Blocked SPID.  Is there a counter in the performance monitor that can monitor that for me so that it can send me a message whenever it has a blocked SPID?

You can set an alert to fire with these charactistics:
Type = SQL Server event alert
Error Number = 60001  (msg is SPID %s is blocked by SPID %t).

However I much prefer the method posted by geotiger. Blocking locks are a normal part of database activity. The majority of them are of short duration and no interest. The advantage of geotiger's method is that only long duration locks are captured.
