Q is a tough letter. But in the realm of Geeks, there was one thing I knew I could write about. Quidditch—The game everyone loves and wishes was real from Harry Potter.

Quidditch is a fictional game from the world of Harry Potter. Basically, two teams fly on broomsticks trying to make goals in three hoops at the opposite end of the field. One position, called the Seeker, flies around trying to find the golden snitch, which is a golden ball with wings. If the Seeker catches the golden snitch, the game is over and his/her team is awarded 150 points. Read more about Quidditch here.
All I know that if my school had this game instead of football, I would’ve had a lot more school spirit. Even if they couldn’t actually fly, I think it would still be extremely entertaining. I wouldn’t be participating though…I am not that coordinated. If I had to play Quidditch for gym class or something, I would’ve chosen to find the Snitch. Let’s be honest here—it’s the coolest job.
What game/sport from a fictional book or movie do you wish was real? (Anyone who says Hunger Games…I fear for you. 😉 )
