The Score

Posted on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 at 2:44 PM

+4 Some local guys convince the Foo Fighters to play here by raising $70,000 in tickets to a concert that had yet to be scheduled. Next up, they're trying to convince Smashmouth to open the show by pointing out that its members have nothing better to do.

+8 Richmonders gather around grills, pools and dining-room tables to celebrate Father's Day. Which is very much like Mother's Day, except moms aren't allowed to wrap the day up with an afternoon nap on the couch.

-2 Local bars are filled with revelers for World Cup watching parties. Public service announcement: Don't take a shot every time you see Cristiano Ronaldo shirtless.

+1 A team of VCU engineering students prepares for drone-building battle, heading to the Small Unmanned Aerial Systems competition in Maryland. You know you found a good major when you can claim PlayStation as a high-level training device.

+3 The Martin Agency opens an office in London, its first expansion into an international market. So what do we need to do to ship that hump-day camel overseas?
