The Score

Posted on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 4:00 AM

+4 The very sexy Dirtwoman celebrates his 58th birthday. So what do you get Richmond's very large transvestite hooker — our own Notorious B.I.G. — turned do-gooder? A cake, a man and some hand sanitizer.

+7 In other holiday news, Richmond's downtown sparkles after the annual Grand Illumination, kicking off the Christmas season. For extra symbolism, there's one light for every person who got laid off this year.

-6 University of Richmond's popular football coach, Mike London, who led the Spiders to a national championship, leaves to replace Al Groh at the University of Virginia. Finally, U.Va. scores a victory!

-3 Virginia Lawyers Weekly reports on a study that says the poor economy will “fundamentally change the business of law.” Attention, fat-cat partners: Lunches must now be scaled back to only one martini and a shared cigar.

+5 Local startup Intelliject, founded by hotshots and severely allergic twin brothers Evan and Eric Edwards, lands a licensing deal for an upfront $25 million and perhaps tens of millions more. At least there's no allergy to cold hard cash, baby!
