The Wire and Treme were created by David Simon, former reporter for the Baltimore Sun. Simon back in 1987 spent some time with the Baltimore Homicide Unit and subsequently wrote a great book entitled "Homicide, A Year On The Killing Streets". Then came the NBC TV spin off of the book back in the early 90's, Homicide Life on the Streets. Some of the actors seem to follow Simon and his productions, i.e. actor Wendell Pierce who played Detective Bunk Moreland in the Wire also plays Antoine Batiste in Treme additionally actress Melissa Leo who played Det. Kay Howard in the NBC Homicide appears as John Goodman's wife in Treme. Understand Simon is now working on a TV mini-series (probably HBO) entitled Manhunt. This will be about the 12 day hunt for John Wilkes Booth after the assasination of Lincoln and will be based upon the book "Manhunt by Swanson" which is a great book, easy read page turner.
"Topeka RoadRunner defenseman Chris Bond has been formally invited to attend and participate In the Washington Capitals Summer Camp, ...In his rookie season in Topeka, the 18-year old Bond tallied 14 assists and racked up 58 PIM's in 48 games. He was fourth on the team with a solid plus/minus rating of +25. The 6'2", 205 lb. blueliner who hails from Centreville, VA ...."
"The invite did come as a surprise to Bond. "I knew they had come out to watch me a couple of times but didn't know if anything would come from it", he said."
Based on the updates this spring, there's no reason to think Carlson is considering changing his jersey number from 74 at this time, but I also don't think this bobblehead is definitive proof of anything regarding the number.
With Carlson, his preferred number is not available, #11. I know he has worn #6 in the past, as well, and as we know, he wears #4 in Hershey, where numbers are simply assigned, except for select veteran players, but they use the low numbers (yeah!).
I'm not a fan of the Caps approach of giving the call-ups their camp numbers, in general, and I'm not a fan of higher numbers, in general, but at this point, I kind of like the idea of Carlson continuing with 74.
