Futbol, Bigfoot and big screens

OK. Everyone, back to work: Belgium defeated the United States, 2-1, in extra time Tuesday, dropping the U.S. from the World Cup tournament.

Our fascination with futbol may be over for another four years, but at least our young soccer players have learned the importance of theatrics and persuasive speaking when arguing for yellow or red cards.

Let’s all go to the lobby: For many TV lovers, 50-inch screens just don’t cut it anymore. The big sellers now are screens 55 inches and larger as people turn their living rooms into home theaters.

Of course, for the real home theater experience, you’ll need to dump stale popcorn behind the recliner cushions and have the kids spill pop until you can fix the cat to one spot on the floor.

If you’re done, they’d like the hair back: Oxford University in London has tested 36 samples of hair thought possibly to have come from a sasquatch, but all samples proved to be from bears, wolves, cows, raccoons and one human.

Further DNA testing will be necessary to determine from which member of the cast of “Duck Dynasty” the hair came.
