                  Hey! But no, I've never ever come across a bar where they showed basketball in The Netherlands. I've always been condemned to watching games online. Through the years I've watched complete games with such a bad quality that I barely could tell where the ball was or who was on the floor, staring intensely at the screen just to see something (hmm).
