The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Jan 8, 2013 at 5:37 PM


+3 Richmond native and Collegiate School grad Russell Wilson continues his ascent as a rookie quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, leading a takedown of the Redskins on Sunday. Dear Mr. Wilson: You've made us proud. Now would you consider donating to your alma mater? We need a new arena for our JV lacrosse team. XOXO, Collegiate

+1 NBC-12 reports on the archaeologists excavating the future site of the Redskins training camp behind the Science Museum for historical artifacts that might be buried. Our best guess: a few Civil War-era musket balls and maybe a dinosaur femur. So are we done here? RG3 IS COMING TO TOWN.

+5 The T-D reports on the sale of 43 acres near the Bass Pro Shops off Interstate 95 to build an outlet mall with 392,000 square feet of shopping bliss. Meet Richmond's newest gold mine: overstocked J. Crew sweaters.

+4 Steven Spielberg comes to the Richmond Forum for a discussion about the making of "Lincoln." Among the revelations: During her down time on set, Sally Field crocheted stray beard hair into an infinity scarf!

+1 New eatery A2 opens on Main Street, featuring the bento dog — a tempura-fried hot dog with Japanese mayo, nori flakes and teriyaki. Hey, we only eat our bento dogs with Duke's!
