Quidditch: The Next Recognized NCAA Sport?

The other day, on our way to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One*, my husband and I were talking about how different this film would be from the others: no Hogwarts, no Dumbledore, and no Quidditch!  And then he threw me for a loop and mentioned that he'd heard students at colleges and universities were pushing to have Quidditch recognized by the NCAA.  I didn't really believe him.  Then I saw this video posted at Fuse #8 this morning and read the above article.

So, I guess it's real.  And now it's getting the wheels in my head turning.  I'd already been thinking about creating and leading a week-long Hunger Games Survival Camp.  Could a Quidditch camp be another possibility?

*30 Second Film Review: I thought it was well-paced and not draggy (unlike the first half of the book).  Emma Watson was superb.  They all nailed the brief moments of comedy in an otherwise very dark film.  I especially enjoyed the seven (or however many there were) Harrys.

Creepster Alert: Random Creepy Guy

A friend sent me this site today. It just goes to show that sometimes, just being yourself and being caught in a photograph is creepy.

Creepsters are everywhere.

Creepster Alert: Garmin Christmas Commercial

The commercial includes not only a life-size, walking, moving Nutcracker, but also the line "real scary clown." Definitely creepy.

Creepster Alert: Pedophile Statues

I'm not exactly sure what the name of this statue in the Vatican museum is, but it's supposed to have something to do with the Nile. I shall call it "God of the Pedophiles."

Creepster Alert: Street Performers

You know it's creepy when the blogger's photo caption reads:

Florence main square.
Me getting molested by a street performer dressed as a marble statue. He was creepy...he kept...petting people.

and if you right click on the photo, its name is "MeandCreepyStatue."

Creepy or Not?: Costumed Characters

Seems to me that dressing up in costume as a favorite children's character so that I could hug and caress small children (and have them do so back to me) without anyone being able to see my face is the perfect job...for a child molester.

Creepy or decide!
