Quidditch wants an Olympic bid

Quidditch_Pitch

The Clog is an avid fan of Cal Quidditch [1], and any Quidditch in general (although we’d much prefer to see the Muggle version in the air). Apparently, as the Olympic torch passed through Oxford, England the other day, the first major international Quidditch tournament was staged to the jubilant cheers of Harry Potter fans across the world.

Athletes at the international exhibition [2], which included teams from the USA, Canada, France, Britain and Australia, said they thought the sport deserved a spot in the Games. But one of the sepctators, Emma Bound, said “I don’t think it’s for the Olympics. It’s probably better when the broomsticks actually fly.” We completely agree. And we’re pretty sure the majority of the world shares our same sentiment.

Get crackin’, physicists. Who cares about Higgs-Boson [3] when you have Quidditch at stake?
