Comicpalooza – Quidditch Anyone?
Comicpalooza this past Memorial Day weekend brought us celebrities, comics, cosplay, music and Quidditch. Yes that’s right the sport from Harry Potter, still don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a quick definition:
Quidditch is a competitive sport in the wizarding world of the Harry Potter universe, and is from the series of children’s novels and movies. It is an extremely rough but very popular semi-contact sport, played by wizards and witches. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding flying broomsticks, using four balls and six elevated ring-shaped goals, three on each side of the Quidditch pitch (field). In the Harry Potter universe, Quidditch holds a fervent following similar to the position that association football holds as a globally popular sport.
Now that we know exactly what Quidditch is now lets see it in action.
