Harry Potter has become a worldwide sensation. The masses gathered at midnight on book and movie release dates, some dressed in style. What kid hasn’t considered which house at Hogwarts he or she would be a part of? But can this love of witchcraft and wizardry go too far? Colleges around the world have implemented Quidditch teams and the game is now considered a sport on par with basketball and soccer. There is even the Quidditch World Cup.
Are fans living the dream? Or are they taking obsession to a whole new level? With the book series completed and the final installment of the movies released, do you think this new sport can last as long as its literary inspiration?
