The Score

Posted on Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 1:33 PM


+2 Senators and delegates from across Virginia gather in Richmond for a new session of the General Assembly. Also known to the writers at "Saturday Night Live" as Fresh Material Fest 2013.

0 Gov. Bob McDonnell delivers his State of the Commonwealth address in the Capitol, noting that the General Assembly has met in the building for 220 years. More old white guys have played here than at the Country Club of Virginia.

-2 Season hopes are dashed for Richmond native Russell Wilson, the young star quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, whose playoff game is spoiled by the Atlanta Falcons. Chin up, rookie: You still have your knees.

-3 The Richmond-filmed "Lincoln" takes a beating at the Golden Globes, with Daniel Day-Lewis landing the only win among seven nominations. It's all good. When it comes to the Civil War, Richmond knows how to lose like a winner.

+1 State toxicology scientist Sophfeia Roberts wins a $20,000 wedding in the Richmond Bridal Showcase's "Ultimate Bridal Survivor" contest, drawn from eight contestants who spend a week in a limousine bus. You call that torture? Next year throw in the future mothers-in-law.
