Middlebury Announces Quidditch World Cup

Middlebury has just announced the date of this year's Intercollegiate Quidditch World Cup. Vassar competed in the event last year, but lost to the home team.

The event will take place at Middlebury on Sunday, October 26th, from 10am-6pm.

Commissioner Alex Benepe promises "tons of live entertainers, bands, hot food, games, merchandise, media coverage, and two fully equipped tournament quidditch fields."

MiddBlog reports that around 60 teams are expected to compete in the event.

Ugh...this again. Looks like another year of embarasing photos that will make Vassar students look like the lamest people alive.

I have plenty of fun playing a varsity sport. I personally think what they are doing is stupid, but I think they should be allowed to whatever they want. However, I was really annoyed that they were allowed to play in the middle of campus. You don't see the rugby team on Joss Beach (nor should you). Go out to the Farm or Ballentine.

Judging by your smug tone I'd assume your varsity sport is fencing or frisbee?

frisbee is not a varsity sport! it's totally student run.

i'm pretty sure cross country just became a varsity sport this year... so you haven't really earned the right to talk down to non-varsity sports yet... not that they should ever be talked down to

I'm pretty sure you're an idiot. Cross country has been around for like 30 years...I know that and I'm not even on the team. Quidditch is not a sport. I have no problem with people doing it but to call it a sport is pushing things a little. I'd stick with "game".
