The only reason Keir Hansen really wants the ability to time travel is to be able to get to all the content the geek community creates in a single day. A web dork and hack pixel-pusher by day, all spare hours are devoted to absorbing film and television, reading and writing sci-fi, a smattering of gaming, unlicensed attempts at mixology, culinary adventures, and novice cat wrangling.
He was once accused of being a "Jack of all trades", but that sounded too much like actual work, and the accuser has since been sacked. His particular passions include Whovianism (classic and new), the complete works of Douglas Adams, and anyone who offers a free sample of wine and/or chocolate, even when unmarked white vans are involved. (It's okay. He can run really quickly.)

The Snitch Had It Coming (Quidditch)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

You may pride yourself on your own personal Potterphilia, and you may be an aspiring athlete in a physically challenging, fast-paced field sport like soccer (sorry, football), field hockey, or rugby. But what about where those worlds merge? Enter Quidditch. Initially popularized on university campuses in the United Kingdom and United States in the mid-2000s, it has grown dramatically in structure, engagement, and recognition over the past decade. That being said, however, mention the actual sport to any number of workplace or community muggles, and you may get a blank stare. If this isn’t the perfect grounds for an IDO intervention, we don’t know what is. We were fortunate enough to be recently joined on a Skype call with someone who not only has a great insight on the structure and logistics of Quidditch games, leagues, and seasons, but has a vested interest in seeing the sport’s popularity continue to grow: Jack Lennard is the founder and director of the Quidditch Premier League, and was kind enough to talk with us about the sport, the league, and the players’ passion!
