On the fateful Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011 …
The sky was a vivid blue layered over with perfect clouds …
Many came to watch …
Screams filled the air …
Knuckles were bitten with anxiety, with excitement …
Bets, faiths and even newborn babies — okay, not babies — were recklessly cast …
Frothy butterbeers were downed by thirsty bystanders …
Blue, cardinal and gold came together …
In the epic Cal vs. USC Quidditch Scrimmage!
