The Score


+2 Ben Zywicki, a 26-year-old from Colorado, becomes the first American man since 2000 to win the Anthem Richmond Marathon. It should be noted that Colorado also legalized marijuana this year. You can't argue with data.

+5 Richmond kicks off Virginia Cider Week, joining the celebration across the state with workshops, tastings and special events. Just remember: Drink responsibly and always cab it home from the orchard.

-3 Viewers are stunned to see VCU point guard JeQuan Lewis take a hard fall during the men's basketball season opener against Tennessee, sustaining a concussion and being helped off the court. Get well JeQuan and be careful, guys. Leave the head injuries to Rodney the Ram. That's why we hired him.

-4 Modern and contemporary art curator John Ravenal leaves his post at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts after 16 years, becoming the fourth high-profile employee to depart in the last year. Is it possible he left for a job with more Monet?

+1 Organizers of the RVA Street Art Festival announce next year's location as the Southern States silo complex in Manchester. Blank, phallic-shaped canvases. This can only end well.
