Foreign games.. Sunday Supplement September 30, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Was in Fairview Park this morning, and what did I see but folk playing Jugger… and… Quidditch.

Both are recent constructs, from fictional sources – one from a film, the other, well you know. But, and let me say to each their own, one problem I have with the latter is that it is not merely a construct but one which is literally impossible to play in this physical universe. Jugger at least has the virtue of being playable as is. Grumble grumble…

Ach, come on, don’t be so conservative! ;o) Every single game was a construct once!

I know, I know, I’m being a bit tongue in cheek. But I do think a game where you’re meant to fly on a broomstick in the ‘original’ and you just don’t in the real world iteration – but have a pole you kind of ‘ride’ is a bit… well… meh.

I looked it up on Youtube & what I really like about it is it seems so American. They’re so into just making up games and then taking them seriously, it’s something I like about America. It’s actually a nice bit of cultural appropriation…in Britain it never would have occurred to them to just go ahead and turn it into an actual sport, even if with absurd broomsticks and all.

Interesting. Now if they had hover brooms, or something of that sort…

Or in wingsuits, you’d see who was serious about it then…

That thought made me laugh… that would be great’

That’s what happens when they take the drugs out of sport. The brooms won’t fly no more.
