This past Wednesday was National Signing Day in college football, a day in which schools across the country lock in what recruits will be playing for them next season. Recruits sign letters of intent, which are binding, leaving them only with the options of playing for that school or sitting&
I felt pretty good about this one. Hopefully it’s helpful.
Excited to be a finalist, but not sure how much of a shot I’ve got against Mitch. Hopefully teams in my region like me. The Midwest however, well, that one’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. Curious to see what percentage of the region’s vote the winner will get there.
I feel like Kat really captured the true beauty and grace of quidditch with this one.

Thank Goodness For the Tournaments Today
I spent a lot of the day eagerly awaiting the results of games from the Bottom of the Bracket Tournament and Swamp Cup. It feels good to have actual quidditch to follow again.
I don’t understand snitches that be like “I can’t snitch a game right now I just played and I need to sit down”
how about you go sit down for 20 minutes while hiding in a bush
I can’t speak for all snitches, but I can speak for myself on this one, so I will. I have occasionally snitched right after playing, but really prefer not to, because it does have an adverse effect on me. After playing, I usually have to eat and drink a bunch in order to get enough strength back in order to be able to snitch at my full capacity. If I don’t, my throws are weaker and I tire out a lot quicker while doing them. So I do need to go “sit down,” relax, and recover if I want to be able to snitch anywhere near the best of my abilities.
Fun fact: At World Cup VI, I actually had to snitch two high-profile games nearly back-to-back with little break in between. I got back to the snitch tent after the Maryland-BGSU game and was immediately greeted by Jeff going “Oh good, there you are. I want you snitching the Texas-Texas A&M game that starts in like ten minutes.” I was able to pull it off and still snitch well in that game because I took water and food with me and was able to find a spot under the announcer’s table at the neighboring pitch, so I didn’t have to go very far and could get at least some of the rest and recovery I needed. Circumstances aren’t always that favorable though.
So yes, sometimes “I can’t snitch right now because I need to go sit down and recover” is a valid excuse.”
