If curling can be an Olympic sport, why shouldn’t a sport played by wizards and witches be considered for the London games?

Harry Potter nerds from around the world feel that the sport Quidditch, created by British author J. K. Rowling for the Harry Potter books, should be included in the next Olympic games. If you don’t know the premise of the game it’s probably because you are not a 20 something-year-old virgin, but if you care to find out it click here. Apparently Potter fans take this stuff seriously, as there is an International Quidditch Association and a Quidditch World Cup.

It is obvious from the above video that these “athletes” should get a fair shot at competing in the most prestigious games in the world. Viva la Nerds.
