If only the people of the Netherlands had something to make them more laid back and mellow.

Most likely it started as an argument over whether to go Dutch.

Wooden bats, Subby. Also, probably some rudders.

Someone's not familiar with soccer club fans. The Dutch are usually congenial people. The subject of sports teams and the resilience of the country's dykes is an area of contention.

They've won more European championships than any other country, but their national team is made up mostly of players from their colonies in the Caribbean.

The only rival bars I ever heard of were Cheers vs. Gary's Olde Towne Tavern.

On second thought,  there was a crazy bastard in Little Rock that beat a disc jockey co-owner of a boot-scoot joint almost to death and burned several other places down. Bennigan's became known as "BurnAgains" after the second or third arson act.

However, these were the acts of a money hungry nut, and I don't think patrons of any bar or club ever thought themselves as belonging to a team-like group in competition with others, and probably frequented most clubs equally.

Surprisingly, yes. It's called "honkball" though.

The Dutch cricket team is usually very popular at world cup cricket....

They once (mid 2010's I think) tried to have a triangular international cricket series in Holland, and every.single.game. was rained out. Not a single over bowled

Gary's wanted for questioning.
