  • Here are five ways to have fun this weekend.
    1. Robots will rule the box office this weekend, with the only big movie opening this week being “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” another PG-13 entry in this franchise by Michael Bay, this time starring Mark Wahlberg. Expect lots of explosions and robots acting better than their human counterparts.
    2. The World Cup heats up this weekend, as the Round of 16 begins Saturday. There also is action Thursday and Friday, with, most importantly, the U.S. facing Germany and hoping for a win or a tie so they can move on to the next round (where there are no more ties, for those of you who can’t comprehend how a game can end that way). Go to http://www.espnfc.us/ for schedules, news and more.
    3. This Saturday is the Great American Backyard Campout, a day (and night) designed to get people camping, even if it is only in their backyards. Get the tent ready, get s’more ingredients, prepare your firepit, look up some good campfire stories and enjoy camping out at home!
    4. If you like to spit watermelon seeds (and really, who doesn’t), this weekend is for you: It’s Watermelon Seed Spitting Week! From Thursday to Sunday, spit all the watermelon seeds you can - it’s your duty as an American.
    5. Even though July is National Ice Cream Month, there’s no need to wait until July to really enjoy ice cream. Go out this weekend to your local ice cream shop, or buy your favorite kind (and don’t forget the fixin’s!), and enjoy one of the best things man has ever created.
