Wide angle shot showing functional basketball hoops at both ends.
The backboards fold up to the ceiling to be out of the way.
To the left of the pinball machine is a small pond that contains 4 different species of turtles.
Dart boards and a television are on the far right.

Mark himself standing behind his bar. He built this bar from salvaged church pews from
St. Helens church on Burkhardt Rd (home of the giant St. Helen's festival every summer).
The basketball to Mark's right is signed by the coach himself, Brian Gregory.
To his left, a Beermiester! And behind him photos of Ohio State football (the winning teams).
