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."

Totally sweet. Too bad it's the weekend before I'll be visiting my family in the DC area.

Also, that's the first I've seen of a Carlson shirt. My girlfriend's been wanting one for months, but they seriously don't exist.

I take it he's sticking with 74.

Ugh.

I love that number. Glad he's keeping it!

EDIT: 1974 - the Capital's first year.

Don't like 74. It's a number that you give to the young kids at training camp, who aren't likely to make the team. Here's hoping he switches to 4 when Erskine leaves.

Agreed. Big numbers scream 'look at me look at me' IMO. If you are an all time great then fine but other than that stick to a nice normal number...

2, 6, 9, 12, 13, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 26, 29, 31, 33, 34 all open this season.

Chris Bourque - 56
Andrew Gordon - 63
Carlson - 74
Perreault - 85
Johansson - 90

I think Johansson is keeping 90...but the others could use some new numbers. Bourque looked good with 17 in Hershey. Perreault wore 24. Gordon 10 (Bradley)

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.

the caps defense is loaded with training camp numbers. 52, 55, 74. thats what you get with kids. alzner has a real number at least.

anyway...gretzky, mario and ray bourque sort of make the big numbers viable

That's why I like it so much. A Carlson jersey is definitely in my future.

Which from reports I read was because someone, perhaps in PR, made the effort to try to get it changed for him to his preferred number. If that hadn't happened, he'd probably still be wearing #47.

The Photoshop job in that story is pretty bad.

You dare to mention Sloan, ha ha.

There was a lot of chatter about Green changing his number, I believe to 27 (and a little chatter about 25), a few years ago, and he chose to stick with 52.

Well I'm not going to put my head in the sand and pretend he won't be on the roster this coming season...

I don't see what's wrong with #52 and #55, those are typical defenceman numbers.
