Our new Officials Manager Brandon Kreines is fairly new to the sport of quidditch, despite having over 10 years of experience reffing for other sports and managing employees in various businesses. He documented his first tournament experience at the 2014 Global Games in Burnaby, Canada:

" ‘Yea. Bludger control is so critical and obvious that it’s not even really strategy,’ says Dan, shattering my ego in between bites of a sandwich. “

This is the greatest sentence ever. 

Thanks for your comment about long distance relationships. That anon was an ass. Glad you called them out.

Word, yo.

"I don’t understand all these Quidditch long distance relationships. Seeing each other every few months, or even once a month, is not a relationship. Texting is not a relationship. You’re only going to get the version of them they want you to see. Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that you don’t get to date the person you want".

It’s ok if you don’t want to be in a long distance relationship, but you have ZERO right to judge those that do. You’re not in the relationship, so stop pretending like you understand how it works.

Now that the full list of Quiyk teams has been leaked, I thought it would be a fun exercise to see how the collective opinion of the Quiyk GMs matched up with the opinion of the Team USA selection committee.

Here is a Google Doc of the selections, for reference:

Shouldnt bryan barrows be an alternatw then?

No, the other male chasers on the alternates list are all higher in the draft than Barrows was by quite a bit.

If the Quiyk GMs Had Drafted Team USA

Now that the full list of Quiyk teams has been leaked, I thought it would be a fun exercise to see how the collective opinion of the Quiyk GMs matched up with the opinion of the Team USA selection committee.

Here is a Google Doc of the selections, for reference:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoiQ2SwDA7c0dEFkSWtVcjAzOGVSY1NMREVmU3VwQ0E&usp=sharing

A few notes:
- I fully recognize that some of these people did not apply to Team USA. I don’t have the list of all the applicants.
- I also recognize that the first 10 rounds or so of this draft were done prior to World Cup VII, which would have changed the opinions of the GMs.
- Since Augustine Monroe and Vanessa Goh specifically requested to be reserves, I’ll put them there as well, despite them being first round picks.
- I’m going to use the same ratios that the selection committee used: 8 male chasers, 3 female chasers, 3 female beaters, 2 male beaters, 3 male keepers, 1 seeker, and 1 male utility. For the reserves, I will select 3 male keepers, 8 male chasers, 3 female chasers, 3 male beaters, 2 female beaters, and 2 seekers.
- I will also use the selection committee’s rule of a maximum 2 from each regular season team, and a minimum of 2 from each region. As I go down the list, any player that does not meet all of the remaining requirements will be skipped for the main team (and added to the reserves)

Without further ado, here is the Quiyk GMs’ hypothetical Team USA, in order of selection:
Sarah Holub (fC, Lone Star, SW)
Tony Rodriguez (K, Lost Boys, W)
Drew Wasikowski (mC, Texas A&M, SW)
Brittany Ripperger (fB, Baylor, SW)
Stephen Bell (K, Lone Star, SW)
Peter Lee (mB, Lost Boys, W)
Brendan Stack (K, BU, NE)
Max Havlin (mB, BU, NE)
Kifer Gregoire (mC, Texas A&M, SW)
Adam Richardson (mC, UCLA, W)
Harry Greenhouse (mC, UMD, MA)
Sean Pagoada (mU, Florida’s Finest, S)
Aryan Ghoddossy (mC, UT, SW)
Peter Reynebeau (mC, Arkansas, SW)
Joey Reynebeau (mC, Arkansas, SW)
Melissa White (fB, LSU, SW)
Audrey Wright (fC, UT, SW)
Keir Rudolph (S, Kansas, MW)
Scott Axel (mB, Penn State, MA)
Meredith Taylor (fC, BGSU, MW)
Bernardo Berges (mC, Miami, S)

And the alternates:
Augustine Monroe (K, UT)
Vanessa Goh (fC, Lost Boys)
Simon Arends (mC, Lone Star)
Chris Morris (mC, Lone Star)
Kody Marshall (mC, Lone Star)
Mollie Lensing (fB, Lone Star)
Chris Seto (mB, Lost Boys)
David Gilbert (mB, Baylor)
David Fox (K, Emerson)
Katrina Bossotti (fB, BU)
Chris Rhodes (mB, Baylor)
Zach Luce (K, UCLA)
Michael Powell (mC, BU)
Becca DuPont (fC, Texas A&M)
Steve DiCarlo (S, Lost Boys)
Missy Sponagle (fC, Lost Boys)
Jeffrey Lin (mC, Lost Boys)
Kedzie Teller (mC, QC Boston)
Scott Beloff (mC, Miami)
Brad Armentor (mC, LSU)
Andrew Hryekewicz (S, Texas A&M)

Wow, that was hard to figure out. Thoughts? Did I make a mistake somewhere?

Edit 7/28/14 02:14 PDT: It was pointed out to me that Scott Axel was higher on the draft than Bryan Barrows. The list has been updated to reflect the necessary changes.

"This whole ~Gambits~ thing is bullshit."

In what way is it “bullshit”? Like, they’re actually going to exist, it’s not a joke.
