quidditch in america

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them! Do muggles have any sport that is half as interesting as Quidditch?

Harry Potter / Marvel fusion~! Tony’s in Ravenclaw of course. I can just see him making magical objects, can you imagine how much trouble he would get into?? Though he could be in Gryffindor if he wanted… and seeing who else is in Gryffindor, he definitely would want to (ahemSteve-!)

anonymous asked:

Do either of you play quidditch?

Arthur: “Actually Jones, I’m pretty sure you’re referring to Potter. Every time I’ve seen you play you end up in the infirmary.”

Alfred: “Aw, Art. You’re just jealous that I can ride a broom and you can’t.”

Arthur: “So what if you can? At least I’m passing my classes.”

Alfred: “… What’s your point?”

Arthur: “My point is that maybe playing quidditch isn’t the best choice for you. You need to spare the few brain cells you have remaining.”

from Quidditch in America

“We knew from the get-go it was gonna be an uphill climb.  Over here, tackle football is king.  Even within the wizarding community.  It’s just something about our culture.  It thirsts for human confrontation.  We knew we had to give it to ‘em.  We’re not gonna field clubs like Puddlemere United or even the Chudley Cannons.  We knew our audience.  They prefer collision over precision.  Sure, the European leagues have all the tradition and trophies and money, but none of them have ever had what we have.  American Ingenuity.  Innovation.  Risk taking.  Hell, the sport of Quidditch hasn’t changed on the continent since 1883!  We knew it was time for some new blood.  New ideas.  So here in the American League we’ve incorporated the native muggle sport of lacrosse into the game.  Sure, we had the basketball-inspired ‘Harlem Shuffle’ move before, but who wants Quidditch when you could have Quidditch with sticks?  Here in America our sports need edge.  I think the risk has paid off.  The game of American Quidditch has soared in popularity.  Games are faster.  Higher-scoring.  Injuries more gruesome.  There’s nothing like watching a well-aimed bludger fell an opposing beater on a scorching Independence Day Tourney while wolfing down as many hot dogs as you can possibly fit in your mouth.  The sport has never been this big over here before.  Next season, we’re even expanding the league by two more clubs, the Dixie Dodgers and the Sheboygan ‘Wursts.  The future of Quidditch in America couldn’t be brighter.”

I feel like American wizards would play lacrosse-or like a magical version of it- since it is the oldest sport in america. And maybe like during colonization of America, European wizards saw the natives playing it and took that idea and changed it, like a lot of Europeans did with native ideas at the time. And the game of quidditch has some similarities to quidditch, so the theory kinda holds to some degree

Yeah that’s a really cool idea! Before Quidditch was even brought to America, and before Quodpot was invented, Native American wizards were already playing their own form of magical lacrosse. So when European wizards arrived and noticed the similarities to Quidditch maybe they encouraged the American wizards to develop the sport and now it is the oldest wizarding sport in the country. Even if Quodpot is the most popular, magical lacrosse is still the first one every American learns.
