The Score

Posted on Tue, Jun 10, 2014 at 3:36 PM

+5 Thousands of hungry Richmonders turn out for the Richmond Bacon Festival, which falls on the last day of RVA Bacon Week. Completely unrelated, has anyone seen Parker the Rally Pig lately?

+2 The new head coach of the Washington Redskins, Jay Gruden, gets his first look at training camp in Richmond, where his team will practice with the Patriots. When asked what he's most looking forward to, he says what we're all thinking: Tom Brady.

-2 A transgender woman tells CBS-6 that she's upset with a local McDonald's for barring her from using the women's room. So this is a place that can't tolerate gender equality but can glorify a burger thief in a black cape?

-1 Democrat state Sen. Phillip Puckett resigns his seat, tilting the balance of power in the chamber and potentially leaving Republicans in control. With this newfound power, they vow to do as little as possible until gridlock is restored.

+3 Worldwide DJ phenom Skrillex brings his Mothership Tour to Brown's Island, bringing, by one onlooker's count, at least three tour buses and five tractor-trailers. In a nod to the environment, the engines are fueled by gallons of recycled sweat.
