Harry Potter in Aggieland?
Harry Potter may not be coming to town anytime soon but his sport, Quidditch, sure is! The game of Quidditch is featured in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, where the students fly around on broomsticks wearing their team robes.
Flying Aggies? No, but a group of Texas A&M University students have adapted the game, where their feet remain on the ground! The Aggies plan to attend the 2010 Quidditch World Cup in New York City on November 13th and 14th.. They will face 50 other teams from around the world.
The newest Harry Potter film premieres on November 15, 2010.
