    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).

    If the question was, "Which actress from the latest installment of Batman would you date?" I would likely consider Anne Hathaway. Then I would skim through all of the extras in the background and settle on Maggie Gyllenhall's picture..
