Kicking Up “The Score” 

Unfortunately, in the last weekly zeitgeist (“The Score,” Street Talk, Aug. 26) you neglected to rate the Richmond Kickers' thrilling Aug 22 semifinal 1-0 victory over the Harrisburg City Islanders with a goal in the final minute of the second and final overtime period. But fortunately, the Kickers have given you an opportunity to atone with an even more thrilling Aug. 29 come-from-behind 3-1 championship victory over the hated Charlotte Eagles with three second-half goals. If this is not worth at least a +6 in the weekly zeitgeist (come on, this is at least as good as three country western singers appearing at the Hat Factory), then we truly cannot call Richmond a sports town.
