draco discovers football

DRACO : Harry! Harry! Look what I found on our tiny screen thingie! 

HARRY : It’s a television Draco, and that’s football–a muggle sport.

DRACO : It looks easy! Nothing compared to Quidditch, we should play this mystical football sport. 

HARRY : Um…I don’t think that’s a good idea…

DRACO : DO YOU NOT BELIEVE IN MY FOOTBALL SKILLS? LET’S GO SCARHEAD.

*twenty minutes later*

HARRY : *calmly trying to detangle Draco from the net* 

DRACO : *crying dramatically* HELP HARRY! FOOTBALL IS ATTACKING ME.

de-aged Sportacus appreciation post

I really enjoyed this episode for a couple of reasons:

  • Sport has always been a strong and talented little bastard (look at dem moves)
  • Sport can’t lie to save his life ie. he introduces himself as “Spob”
  • Sport is very brave even when faced with an unthinkable scenario
  • Sport has always been shaped like a friend. Him and Stephanie would have been best friends if grown up together
  • Sport continues to be a cheeky shit to Robbie “10 seconds is all I need…I guess I was wrong, I only needed 8”

Bonus:

Stefan brought his birb to work
