The Score

Posted on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 4:00 AM

+5 With 17,500-plus in the stands, the University of Richmond draws its largest football crowd in 11 years, and beats William and Mary in the final seconds of the game. Just in time for the Spiders to move to their new on-campus stadium that fits 8,700. 

-4 CBS6 reports that artist Hamilton Glass must repaint a mural on ALB Tech's West Main building called “Recession 2009,” showing a businessman with a gun to his head, after the neighboring Miller House Bed and Breakfast demands it come down. Hey, if tourists are brave enough to stay at a B&B, they can take a little mural. 

+2 Midlothian is named as a retirement “hot spot” in the next quarterly Retirement Lifestyles magazine. You might recall this is the magazine made famous by its “Blue Eyes, Blue Hairs, Blue Pills of the ACC” centerfold edition. 

-3 Singer and Rihanna beater Chris Brown plays the Landmark, with an audience the T-D reports to include at least 3,500 female fans. Go ahead, girls — ‘cause really, with abs like that, who cares about a little bruising, right?  -3

-1 The Santa area of Bass Pro Shops catches fire, the T-D reports, with Hanover County fire officials starting an investigation. Sources are pointing to a faulty space heater in Santa's illicit Cuban cigar-rolling operation, in which elves are forced to put their little fingers to good use.
