The Score

Posted on Tue, Sep 9, 2014 at 2:51 PM

- 10 A jury returns guilty verdicts in 11 of 14 conspiracy and corruption charges against Bob McDonnell and his wife, making him the first Virginia governor in history to be convicted of a crime. In his defense, it's not like they had Ferarris back in Jefferson's day.

+5 Did we mention? The trial is over. Now you can all go back to tweeting about Sugar Shack Donuts.

-2 A shirtless Henrico County man makes headlines — and gets arrested — during the Sprint Cup NASCAR race after climbing a security fence over the track at Richmond International Raceway. Dude, there's a better way of getting a good look at Danica Patrick.

+6 The second annual Fall Line Fest offers a weekend packed with performances by more than 50 bands playing across six local venues. And only two reported cases of wristband fatigue.

+1 A 7-foot fir from Louisa County's Claybrooke Farm is named Virginia's 2014 Grand Champion Christmas Tree, with the prize of providing the official Christmas tree to the Executive Mansion. And a heads up from Gov. Terry McAuliffe and family: No gifts please.
