Kickin' it

Failing upward: Despite dropping a 1-0 match to Germany on Thursday, the U.S. advanced to the round of 16 in the World Cup, thanks to Portugal's victory over Ghana.

Thus the Americans now enter the “knockout” stage of the Cup, which The Buzz, not being knowledgeable about soccer, assumes to mean that losers get a visit from two-fisted U.S. women's team goalkeeper Hope Solo.

Willllburrrr, I'm bored: A workshop Saturday promises to teach local horse owners how to keep their steeds entertained during those long wet months in the paddock.

Not among the workshop's recommendations: giant oat-filled Kongs and a very special kind of grass in the forage.

Supertrain: In the new sci-fi movie “Snowpiercer,” a speeding train carries the Earth's surviving humans nonstop on a track that circles the planet.

Herald movie critic Robert Horton acknowledges the film's premise is far-fetched, especially since the train is never forced to stop because of landslides between Mukilteo and Edmonds.
