Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!ZportzOlympicsFunnyGIFs

These sports should DEFINITELY be added to the 2016 Rio Olympics!

OK, so we know there's still two more years before the 2016 Olympics in Rio, but hey, it's never too early to start planning ahead!

By now, most of us are all familiar with traditional summer Olympic sports like soccer, basketball, and of course track & field! But if you ever paid close attention, you'd notice that there are also some pretty interesting sports on the schedule as well!

So we thought we'd lend a helping hand to the IOC a recommend a few more awesome sports that would definitely spice things up a bit!

Seriously, could you imagine Ireland and Bulgaria facing off in quidditch in REAL LIFE?! Or if all of your years of playing beer pong in college finally earned you a shot to win a gold medal! The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Anyone Want Quidditch Lingerie?!

warner-brothers-trademarks-harry-potter-quidditch-lingerie

Well, we have to give them credit. They've pretty much covered anything!

Now that the Harry Potter film franchise is quickly approaching its conclusion, Warner Brothers is attempting to ensure that they milk the cashcow series for everything its worth - by securing the rights to as many aspects of the fantasy series - and branding these aspects on pretty much any medium imaginable!

Take the wizarding sport of Quidditch, featured in the series, for example - Warner Brothers has trademarked its name and likeness, so that only they can EXCLUSIVELY the following products:

Clothing for men, women and children, namely, shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jogging suits, trousers, pants, shorts, tank tops, rainwear, cloth bibs, skirts, blouses, dresses, suspenders, sweaters, jackets, coats, raincoats, snow suits, ties, robes, hats, caps, sunvisors, belts, scarves, sleepwear, pajamas, lingerie, underwear, boots, shoes, sneakers, sandals, booties, slipper socks, swimwear and masquerade and Halloween costumes and masks sold in connection therewith"

Well, well, well…lingerie, huh?

We think it's time for Warner Brothers to release that to coincide with the final film!

Who wouldn't want quidditch lingerie?!

LOLz! Toooo much! We love it!

Check out everything else to which the word Quidditch is trademarked…AFTER THE JUMP!

Could Quidditch Become An NCAA Sport?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!Zportz

student play quidditch sport in real life

Did U know that Quidditch, the broom-based sport from the Harry Potter series, has become a real sport?

Don't believe us? Why don't you ask one of the 60 teams that will gather at De Witt Clinton Park in NYC next weekend for the fourth annual Quidditch World Cup!

The event will be attended by high schools and universities from all over the country, including Harvard, Yale, and Duke.

While many people might be satisfied with the fact that the sport has become a reality, Valerie Fischman, a student from the University of Maryland, wants more!

Fischman has launched a campaign for Quidditch to be recognized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Here's what she had to say about it:

"I think that having NCAA status will give it a little more credibility and help keep it around a little bit longer. I'm hoping that it stays around after the Harry Potter generation leaves college."

Here's what would be necessary to make Quidditch an NCAA sport:

-Official Quidditch clubs must be in at least 50 colleges across the country

-Athletic directors from 50+ colleges must individually petition the NCAA

Fischman will be seeking support from the International Quidditch Association which actually exists.

Looking to bring Quidditch to your school? Check out the official rulebook and spread the word!

Harry Potter Coming To 3D Blu-Ray!!!

harry potter coming to 3d blu ray soon

The only thing better than seeing DanRad in crystal-clear perfect quality is to see him flying around your living room during a 3D game of quidditch!

Warner Bros is currently working on bringing the Harry Potter series to 3D blu-ray, starting with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

They've begun work on the Half-Blood Prince conversion to 3D, and we're glad to hear that they intend on doing it right, instead of rushing through the process, like they did with the infamous 3-Disaster Clash of the Titans.

No word yet on specific time frames for when these 3D conversions will be released, especially for earlier Harry Potter titles, but we're glad to hear they're on their way.

Should be inneresting to see if they decide to re-release the 3D Harry Potter films in theaters, like what Fox is doing with the Star Wars series.

Are U excited for 3D Harry Potter to make its way into your home?
