Sunday after church, we headed over to Boise State to watch my brother play and host a big Muggle Quidditch tournament. Yes, you read it right—Quidditch—like Harry Potter Quidditch. My brother is the captain and founder of the brand new Boise State team. Apparently, there are tournaments all over the world, and this club sport is really gaining momentum. The BSU team is called the Abraxans, aptly named after the flying horses in the popular wizardry series, which also fits with the school's mascot—the Broncos.
We watched BSU play and defeat the University of Idaho team in both games, and even overtime. It was exciting, it was fun, and it was really, really nerdy. But hey, it's not every day that you get your family together to go watch a bunch of adults run around on broomsticks and chase a golden snitch, now is it?
Did you like Stew's celebratory round-off above? Oh, and you may have noticed the big fancy camera up there shooting the team during their post-game huddle. The news came out to shoot and feature the Abraxans, and I knew it would be just perfect to show you the news segment so you can get a real idea of how cool (and slightly nerdy) this sport is. Give a big cheer for my bro, too. Stew is the man.
