The Score

This Week: Kung Fu Grandpa, Dogwood Classic recap, anti-sodomy redux + more.


+4 That "Kung Fu Grandpa" video, of a Richmond man practicing his nun chuck skills in a Food Lion parking lot, climbs toward 10 million views on YouTube and spurs a website selling related merchandise. This is what happens when nursing homes have Bruce Lee movie marathon nights.

+3 The Richmond Flying Squirrels suspend their sold-out season opener because of rain, but chase away the gloom the next night with their first no-hitter in franchise history. It was so exciting that The Diamond started crumbling all around them.

+5 The inaugural Dogwood Classic brings dressed-up revelers to Colonial Downs, where a gelding named Sporty wins the $25,000 title run while carefree tailgaters party it up. The fun is followed by Sunday's race to the last Advil in the medicine cabinet.

+1 A fugitive from Richmond City Jail who broke free from an officer's grip last week is recaptured by authorities after he tries jumping from the window of a residence where he was hiding. He should have tried jumping from a dam instead. It worked for Harrison Ford.

-4 With Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli seeking to put Virginia's anti-sodomy laws back on the books, banning oral and anal sex, Mother Jones reports that his camp won't say whether he's ever violated the law. Though he's fine talking out of either orifice.
