For those of you who don't know, my college boasts a whopping 5% athletes. Yeah. And an unofficial 4% of those are Quidditch players.
You know...Quidditch, like from Harry Potter.
Oh yes, my school is one of the approximately 160 colleges across the country who play Quidditch on a regular basis. Can I just tell you how happy this makes me? It's like we're wearing a stamp on our collective head that says, "UBERDORK." And we are. And we're proud.
Here are some pictures of the Quidditch match that was held today. It was a gorgeous day (a bit on the chilly side), but the Quidditch was GOOD!
On your mark...get set...
Uh oh...someone's down. But all's fair in love and Quidditch!
(P.S. It totally makes my day to have to explain Quidditch to innocent bystanders. "The chasers have to score with the Quaffle, yeah, those white balls, while the beaters are trying to hit them with the Bludgers, yes, they're called Bludgers OH LOOK THERE'S THE SNITCH! And the seekers are chasing after it! Yes, those ARE broomsticks between their legs. Have you not read Harry Potter, people?!?")
