The Score

Posted on Tue, May 6, 2014 at 2:13 PM

+1 Lee-Davis High School junior Josh Meisner asks his girlfriend to prom by singing a surprise proposal aired live on "Good Morning America." She said yes anyway.

+5 Bikes race through Richmond for the CapTech USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships, with Virginia Commonwealth University's Chris Jones winning the Division I men's individual time trial. This is what happens when you put havoc on wheels.

+2 Altria gives the city a $200,000 grant toward marketing, murals and facade improvements for Richmond's arts and cultural district. Stay tuned for the next First Fridays performance-art piece, "Marlboro Man in Tutu."

+1 Radio host Jimmy Barrett broadcasts his morning show from atop a billboard to announce that his AM station, Newsradio 1140 WRVA, will start simulcasting on the FM dial at 98.5. Which explains the new tag line: "News, traffic, weather and Beyoncé."

+3 Richmond Region Tourism announces the debut of a new beer developed with Center of the Universe Brewing Co. called Thirsty Tour Guide. Because the best kind of tour guide is a tipsy tour guide.
