Quidditch

For those of you who haven’t seen or heard, Drexel has a Quidditch team. It’s been around, hiding in the wings and this year is taking flight (get it?), recently competing in their first scrimmage and looking for new tournaments to take on.

If you haven’t heard of the game of “muggle Quidditch” imagine rugby, with more balls, and everyone running around with a broom between their legs. It’s silly, but it’s rough, and for every chuckle you may have about the game, you’ll probably be just as amazed. Sure there’s no flying around up high like it’s described in the Harry Potter books, but it’ll do just fine.

Check out this video from last year’s Quidditch World Cup in New York and be sure to keep an eye out for the Drexel Quidditch team taking on bigger and badder opponents soon.

Michael Rodino is a junior Music Industry major at Drexel University with a minor in english and business administration.

Michael likes alliteration, and regrettably cannot come up with a good one at this point in time.
