Quidditch is a real sport, even though it seems pretty easy.
The PIT is an official sponsor of the 2011 Quidditch World Cup! 100 teams. 2,000 athletes. 1 World Cup. November 12-13.
OUR LATEST VIDEO! Rich is awesome!
MY SKETCH TEAM. The more I watch this, the more incredible it becomes.
Since my recent posts have been Harry Potter related in preparation for the film, I think it’s a fine time to let you all know I’m one of the announcers for the Quidditch World Cup this year! I better see you there.
More details soon. :)
(omg do we all remember Oliver freakin’ Wood?)
chrispetescia asked: Was this any good? Was there no seeker? I don’t get how this translates to a muggle sport :P
To be completely honest with you I was a little skeptical going in. I was all, “HA WHUT THEY WON’T EVEN BE REALLY FLYING WHAT’S THE POINT LOLZ.” But boy was I wrong!
There are 3 chasers, 2 beaters, 1 keeper, 1 seeker and then (my favorite) the SNITCH RUNNER (who is dressed completely in yellow/gold). The snitch is a tennis ball kept in a sock hanging out of the back of the snitch runner’s shorts. During the game the snitch runner can go wherever and do whatever he wants - he can even leave the field! I witnessed one snitch runner climbing a fence at one point!
DOBBY! I get it. You’re a free elf now. You’re on your own. That doesn’t mean you can just crash my nice Quidditch World Cup photo!!
