I got hooked on this show over the weekend. From the creators of The Wire, Treme is about a group of musicians and other folks living in the Treme neighborhood of post-Katrina New Orleans. This John Boutté tune is the show’s theme song. The music featured in every episode of Treme alone is reason enough to watch.
Pavelski is No. 1 in playoff scoring and No. 1 in Sharks fans’ hearts. Every time his face – adorned with a hopeful ginger playoff beard – appeared on the big screen at HP Pavilion, the crowd swooned. The fans are having a postseason romance the way they haven’t had since – well, maybe since their first love, Arturs Irbe.
That rocking house of teal has been waiting for years to envelope a player with intense, deafening playoff passion, but it’s usually unrequited love. Owen Nolan, Thornton, Patrick Marleau – particularly Marleau – have never responded to the fans’ adoring overtures with sufficient output.
Pavelski has. He’s become a closely-shorn, ice-dwelling counterpart to Tim Lincecum - a young, homegrown guy who makes outlandish things seem possible.
