My MLQ Championship Journey, Day 4

I am not alone in my manager struggles and I have never been. There are at least 15 other people dealing with the “Where’s my ride?” “Why wasn’t I rostered?” “Who is housing me?” “Why aren’t I getting playing time?” and “When is practice again?” shenanigans across the country every summer.

My MLQ Championship Journey, Day 3

My #MLQChampionship Journey, Day 1

There are three reasons why I travel for quidditch: To go to the quidditch tournaments themselves, obviously. To see more of the country. To see my friends across the country. I had a plan today when I landed in Austin at noon. I was going to drop my stuff off at Caroline’s, play tourist, get some […]

My #MLQChampionship Journey, Day 0

I have bittersweet feelings about packing this jersey. I’m not a player. I’m a not a coach. I’m a manager. That means something to me. Jerseys are for people who work on the pitch. I may get shit done off the pitch… but I know I wouldn’t make the 30-player roster for this team. I’m […]
