The Score

Posted on Wed, Mar 16, 2011 at 1:00 AM

+8 Thousands of Richmonders get a head start celebrating St. Patrick's Day during Shamrock the Block, filling the streets of Shockoe Bottom with revelry. Completely unrelated, did anyone find a left shoe, soggy, size 10? 

+7 Both the University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University get bids to the NCAA tournament. We have an office bracket going for the Hokie Whining Championship. 

-1 Former Gov. Tim Kaine, who serves as Democratic National Committee chairman, keeps the suspense going for a U.S. Senate bid, reportedly telling a law school class that he's “likely” to run. Just the kind of bold decisiveness America's been craving! 

+2 Maymont Park announces that you can now use your smart phone to participate in a scavenger hunt across its hills and valleys using the SCVNGR app. If you're over 70, we don't have time to explain. Just go see the bears. 

+5 Gotta go. Guinness is calling.
