Adorable Old Man Writes About Adorable Penn Quidditch Team Being Adorable

The Penn Quidditch team exists, and they played in a Quidditch Cup tournament in Clark Park on the Saturday before Fling. That Sunday, a West Philadelphian named Clark DeLeon, who moved to the neighborhood in 1985, wrote a love letter to the teams and the sport for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Shit is literally beautiful: he describes the Nimbus 2500 as "the Air Jordans of quidditch sweepware." Um, I'm sorry, this man needs an A in my Creative Writing class, stat. Clark, you keep doing what you're doing, you wonderful resident wordsmith. You are the magic.
