FAU's Quidditch team? How will we do in World CUp?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alex-benepe/quidditch-world-cup_b_3016186.html

Real-life quidditch might sound like nerdy fantasy-fulfillment but it's actually an intense collegiate sport. The game was invented in Vermont seven years ago at Middlebury College; today the International Quidditch Association (the governing body for the sport), has over 1,000 teams globally registered. This April 13-14, the top 80 teams, hailing from 22 US states and four nations (including France, Canada, and Mexico), will all be coming to Kissimmee, Florida to compete before an audience of 10,000 spectators. And there are plenty of teams for the sunshine state to cheer for: University of Miami, University of Florida, University of South Florida, Florida State University, Florida Atlantic University, Ringling College, and Brevard College, will all be flying in from around the state for a shot at the trophy.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

10k? More people show up to watch a made-up sport than some FBS teams.

Every sport is "made-up"…

Touche. "Make-believe" probably should have been a better word choice there since they're emulating a fantasy sport that relies on flying brooms and a flying snitch.

(No disrespect to the competition at all - I think Muggle Quidditch is a good thing and would check it out if it were nearby. I just thought it was an interesting thing to point out)
