Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! Upcoming topics & how to join here.

Favorite Quidditch Team/Country

Ooooh, this is an interesting questions.  I remember reading the books for the first time when the gang attended the Quidditch World Cup...I was rooting for Ireland alongside with Harry and the others but I was also (obviously) beyond impressed with the Bulgarian seeker, Krum. Looking back on the series as a whole though, I'd have to say that my favorite Quidditch team would be:

 The Holyhead Harpies

The Holyhead Harpies are an all-girl Quidditch team that hosts players from both Britain & Ireland. I like the fact that this is an all-female team in a league where both male and female players can play together, or against each other, as it were.  It's pretty cool that the team houses players from two countries too to be honest.  Considering Ginny's role with the team post-Hogwarts, I think it's safe to assume that Harry, Hermione, Ron and the rest of the Weasley's would have rooted for them too :D

  1. Great pick! I thought it was so cool that Ginny went on to play Quidditch professionally with them! :D

  2. Awesome pick! These are my second favorite, right after the Irish that made my list this week.
    I love that it's all-female group and that Ginny played a big role there. Awesome.

  5. Oh man, I don't remember this either. The reread later this year cannot happen early enough. I don't care about sports enough to have been able to pick one, but I totally approve of your logic here. Girl power! Sweep the floor with them, ladies! (QUIDDITCH PUNNNNN!)

  6. Heehee, nice choice. And nice graphic, too! I quite like the idea of an all-girls Quidditch team - it would probably have to be my favourite, as well (though a part of me can't help but root for the underdog - the Chudley Cannons, heh). Wouldn't it be the most AMAZING thing to see Quidditch in live action?! It would be SO exciting. And dangerous, obviously. But probably all the more exciting for it!
