The Score

Posted on Tue, Dec 30, 2014 at 10:30 AM

+1 Richmond BizSense counts down the memorable mansion sales of the year, with the late Lora and Claiborne Robins’ estate on River Road going for the highest — a whopping $3.62 million. Though to be fair, that includes a free scullery maid.

-2 Against their signature rivals, the Washington Redskins take a beating from the Dallas Cowboys to end a dreary season with a 4-12 record. At this point, Kirk Cousins would consider a water boy offer from the Seahawks.

-4 Sony turns down the Byrd Theatre’s request to show the controversially pulled-from-theaters comedy, “The Interview.” Sony missed out — the national anthem of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea sounds great on a Mighty Wurlitzer.

+3 Speaking of the Byrd, its manager tells the T-D that he’s bringing the New Year’s Eve ball rise back to the top of the New York Deli in hopes of a more intimate celebration than previous years. And what says intimacy more than 10,000 of your closest friends packed into three city blocks?

+5 Organizers of the new outdoor New Year’s Eve party and light show on Brown’s Island breathe a sigh of relief at a weather forecast predicting no rain. But the DJs are calling for a 100-percent chance of some mad beats, yo.
