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.
