As would I. It's one thing if there's a large group watching another sporting event, but most bars and restaurants have multiple TVs, so it shouldn't be too hard to ensure that everyone gets to watch what he or she wants. I've never had the problem the OP faced, but I did get a strange look from a waitress this past fall when I asked if I could watch the CBS broadcast of an Indianapolis Colts-Houston Texans game.
