  1. This event is very sad.
    It’s also sad that there are people who think of it as “sports” or “athletism”.
    People participating are the saddest realization of our modern world.

    No hard feelings, just sadness. :(

    1. George, I’m sad that you can’t spell athleticism. I’m also sad that you would probably not survive the first five minutes of a Quidditch match. It’s sad to see such narrow-minded individuals at BU.
      So, while you sit back and judge Quidditch without ever having played it, just know that we are all sad that your ignorance will hinder you from ever trying something fun or interesting.

      No hard feelings, just sadness. :(

  2. Oh, come on George! Synchronized Swimming and Rhythmic Gymanstics, as well as Archery and Shooting will be in the Summer Olympics in 2012; and the IOC recognizes Dance, Bridge, Orienteering and Tug-of-war as sports elibible to be contested in the Olympic Games. Have you watched the X-Games lately? Look what they can do on a skateboard! The definition of “sport” is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others – Quidditch certainly qualifies! Now push yourself away from your computer, put down the pizza, turn off ESPN, and go outside for a change…

  3. This is so exciting I think I’ll start to fly! GO BU!
    *May i just mention that you guys need to start up dressing as Viktor Krum, who is the best BULGARIAN quidditch player! (It’s so sad that we don’t have this sport back home! All HP fans think that Bulgaria has one of the best quidditch teams, and in reality, we don’t at all!)

  4. I don’t care what fringe sports people want to play…but seriously, can’t we just have a football team like every other national university? As an alum, I’d rather there be a BU on a helmet that wasn’t Baylor.
