As much as I wish for this brilliant take on the Wizarding Quidditch to be in the UK…

…only in America. Has to be said.

I need to find a Quidditch team somewhere in England. Next World Cup, I better have a team. Then, sign me up. I’ll be there.

I’ll be there this year! It’s going to be great! It’ll be a big letdown if Middlebury wins again, for the fifth time in a row….

I may have to fly over there and check this out. I had no idea Quidditch was this popular enough for people to form there own teams. I may form my own team and compete( in the future).

It’s nice to know the ways they bring certain parts in books to life, although not an exact replica, it’s pretty amazing! (;
