Wow, that’s so cool. The closest I’ve gotten to playing Quidditch was at the Harry Potter exhibition in Chicago. It was so exciting to be able to actually hold a quaffle and throw it through a hoop :)

Hopefully sometime in the future we will be able to play a real game. Cause we will have something to fly on and a radio controled snitch. It would be just awsome.

YES!
Oh, how I wish I could go! Quidditch is amazing… I tried to start a Quidditch team in my town, but the people here are just too narrow-minded to make it work. I’m gonna have to find a college that already has a Quidditch team going…

Guess That Book

"W-what?" Harry stammered. "But I've got to go back -- term starts on September first. It's all that's keeping me going. You don't know what it's like here. I don't [i]belong[/i] here. I belong in your world -- at Hogwarts."
