Unfortunately, we couldn't hang around long enough to see the snitch in action. I wish we could have though, because I've heard that sometimes they glue a yellow ping pong ball to a cross country runner and try to catch him. I would have loved to have seen that.

Quidditch In The Park
Yesterday Eric and I spent some time downtown. The weather was beautiful, so we walked around quite a bit. As we passed through The Common, Eric spotted a Quidditch game. A. Quidditch. Game. What great fortune!
In case you're living under a rock, Quidditch is a made-up game from the Harry Potter series that's played while flying on broomsticks. These days there are leagues and they play competitively. On broomsticks. On the ground. You better believe I took pictures.
