The Score

Posted on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 11:33 AM


+6 The 27th Annual Irish Festival draws an estimated 20,000 people to Church Hill for a weekend of bands, bagpipers, food, Guinness — and rain. Speaking of, remind us not to wear our white kilt next time.

+2 Devoted watchers of the Times-Dispatch's eagle-cam freak out when the larger, older eaglet muscles aside its runty sibling in a ruthless quest for survival. See? Everyone's getting into "The Hunger Games"!

+3 Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield takes over title sponsorship of the popular Richmond Marathon and announces a new finish line at Brown's Island. Finally, a sponsor that can really tackle all that runner's rash.

+1 After on-air tryouts and listener votes, talk-radio station WRVA picks Leland Conway out of Lexington, Ky., as the local host to follow Rush Limbaugh's show in the afternoons. And what do you know, this Leland guy already has more advertisers.

-3 With chef Todd Schneider gone, Virginia State Police reveal that investigators are exploring "a reported allegation of improprieties involving the kitchen operations" at the Governor's Mansion. Let's just hope those desecrated apple pies will get justice.
