Quidditch in 2009 was this ridiculous sport that "real athletes" didn't take seriously and it was fun and silly and weird
By ~ 2014 it was overrun by dudebros who had made "turning quidditch into a legit sport" one of the official goals of the quidditch association
I kind of want to do this to a legit sport, but in reverse
Get a bunch of non-athletes, nerds, queer people, weirdos, whoever, invade that sport, take it over and start slowly changing rules so that it eventually becomes Calvinball
@bgcarlisle one million this
@asdflkjh Goodbye "American" "Football"
@bgcarlisle those words never meant anything to begin with, so it's no loss
@bgcarlisle Somehow do this to American football, making it both safer for the athletes and probably even more entertaining for the audience.
@ink_slinger I would so dearly love to do this
@bgcarlisle but which one? Maybe 🤔🤔🤔 Biathlon!
@bgcarlisle Cricket is ripe for some disruption
