The Score

A weekly rating of the city's zeitgeist.


+6The VCU Rams fall short of the Sweet 16, but in two stunning games show their tough talent by knocking off Duke and rallying from behind to force an overtime against Pittsburgh. Perhaps the glass slipper will fit next year. Let's hope Grant's still there.

+4Even the bitter-cold weather can't deter St. Patrick's Day partyers in Richmond, who file into long lines around Irish hotspots like Sin é. Silly Richmonders, a true Irishman goes to the bar with the shortest line.

+1And with the word "provenance," the winner of the T-D's regional spelling bee is Richmond Montessori School's Lizzie Barnett, 13, who gets to compete at nationals her second year in a row. Now get those spelling bee brackets ready!

-3Police say that a woman who claimed she was raped by a white man and a black man in the Forest Hill area actually made up the story. Look, lady, if you want to make a name for yourself, why not just run away from your wedding like everybody else?

+1Collecting, patronage and leadership in the fine arts: VMFA's Collector's Circle names its Collector of the Year for 2007, and the award goes to ... Philip Morris USA. So how many "Marlboro Miles" do you need to get a Van Gogh?
