Thanks, Pat. That’s awesome. What’s awesomer is that we’ve been granted the final that we all looked forward to: United States vs. Turkey. The traditional power against the home team. For starters I can tell you that BBC World Service is where you can catch the action, but if I come across a more direct link I’ll be sure to let everyone know. Please lend us your feedback either here or on the Euroleague Adventures Facebook Page. Y’all are the best. It shall be fun.
