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).
Yeah, I figured. Seems to be a pretty unpopular sport here. I had similar problems in Montreal because it overlaps with the NHL season. Only bars with lots of tvs, and even then only when there wasn't a Habs hockey game. Did a lot of that squinting at a lagging, fuzzy image...I feel your pain.
