The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.


+1 Flying Squirrels is selected as the name of Richmond's new baseball team. The father of the Balloon Boy immediately begins work on a new publicity stunt.

-3 In a daylight heist, the T-D reports, masked men rob a New York jewelry distributor of $350,000 worth of merchandise outside the Stony Point Shopping Center. Police urge anyone who encounters guys in “blinged-out ski masks” to call their tip line.

+2 The two candidates for lieutenant governor — incumbent Bill Bolling and Jody M. Wagner — debate in Roanoke. Wouldn't it be just as enlightening to see who can eat the most chicken dinners?

0 Virginia Commonwealth University, with 32,350 students, is beat by George Mason as having the most students in the state, according to a head count reported by the T-D. Who cares? VCU still leads in tattoos and piercings! Here's to pissing off mommy and daddy!

+4 Q94 counts down to collecting bras that will be strung across Broad Street in Short Pump on Oct. 23 to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We don't even want to tell you what's being strung across the street for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
