I didn’t have the time to write the pump up, get hyped, let’s go kinda post I wanted because other things demanded to be written and pre-regionals preparations had to be made. But now, as I wind down and get ready for the weekend, I’m back with a little bit of Coach Mom’s Wholesome Quidditch Content.
Yes, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I feel like I’m forever struggling with balancing writing for work versus writing for me. But that’s a blog post for later.
For now, if you’ve missed me pontificating about quidditch, fear not! Alejo Enriquez of How to Play Quidditch invited me to join him and Harry Greenhouse for a podcast.
Alejo’s site is a cool resource for learning about the games, but the podcast is the real gem. He’s been looking for people who are knowledgeable about aspects of quidditch and bringing them on for podcasts. This pod’s topic was one close to my heart: college quidditch and how we as community players can help foster it. Give it a listen here.
I spent all last season on this long journey from Spartan to Skrewt, only to have a bit of a relapse this year. Or maybe it would be better to call it a reset? I don’t have to be one or the other. I can be both. I’m still playing for and managing the Skrewts, but now I’m coaching my alma mater, too.
