[French débâcle, from débâcler, to unbar, from Old French desbacler : des-, de- + bacler, to bar
(from Vulgar Latin *bacculre, from Latin baculum, rod. See bak- in Indo-European Roots).]
How bad was last night's game? At the start of the fourth quarter, I switched on the Sandra Bullock movie on HBO.
That's how bad it was.
