The Score


+1 A Washinton group announces that it's exploring a bid to hold the 2024 Summer Olympics in the nation's capital, with Richmond as a potential hub for related events. But is the world finally ready to see PBR chugging become an Olympic sport?

-3 Summer vacation comes to an end, with students, parents and teachers waking up to the reality of back-to-school season. We can finally play "Call of Duty" online without 12-year-old potty mouths "pwning" us.

-5 Richmond learns that reggae singer Frederick "Toots" Hibbert has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the promoters of the Dominion Riverrock festival, stemming from the injury he suffered from a flying vodka bottle while performing here. Man, David Arquette suffered worse damages from liquor bottles here and never asked for a dime.

+3 The inaugural RVA Wake N' Sun Fest draws riverside revelers to Rocketts Landing over the holiday weekend for DJs, water sports and beer trucks. This was almost called the Wake N' Bake Fest, but Best Friends Day has that covered.

-2 The Richmond Flying Squirrels play their final four games of the regular season. Go see how many peanuts Nutzy can fit in his cheeks before hibernation.
