Quidditch Is An Actual Game Played By People

I stumbled upon this game in New York.

Biking around New York I came upon a group of young people in athletic attire seriously involved in their activity, quidditch -- a competitive sport in the wizarding world of the Harry Potter universe.

In the books, the young students of magic fly around on brooms, chasing magically animated objects.

The people in the park were serious, yelling out commands and encouragement in the way those immersed in their game have done for time immemorial.

However, these people did so with representative brooms (short sticks) jammed in their crotches. I suppose I should salute their commitment, but I just can't stop giggling.
