"SNITCH SNATCH UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN WINS QUIDDITCH WORLD CUP VI 190-80!"
I just saw that the Aggy nation is even celebrating this one http://vimeo.com/26529303
I'll take it and celebrate, but I still say single malt scotch beats firewhiskey, because wizards don't make anything that muggles don't make better. Quills, owls, candlelight, and those ridiculous cloaks? Seriously?
Thanks to you, I just wasted 5 minutes of my life researching this tournament. Two things:
1) A&M was apparently ranked #1 in the nation coming into the tournament, but lost in the Elite 8 to us. Sounds familiar.
2) Is there room on Kyle Field's wall to celebrate an Elite 8 Quidditch appearance?

OMG...the video is the whole game. Gold!
And Chuckie...enjoy the big win. Guess you guys swept A&M this year. Break out the brooms!

We don't even celebrate owning Aggy anymore. It's hardly anything spectacular.
Go home Sin you're drunk.
What's better than making fun of your rival for winning some dorky quidditch tournament? Finding out that your team was ranked #1 in the country going in and lost to said rival.
SEC SEC SEC SEC
Now Bill, as you can clearly see by the seedings, this sport is dominated by the Big 12. A&M is still slowly losing the last of our affiliations with our former conference.
@MuggleNetLive: The Elite 8 is all set: UCLA (1), Kansas (8), N. Arizona (12), Baylor (13), UT Austin (2), Texas A&M (7), Lost Boys (6), and BGSU (31)
Besides, as Johnny Quidditch said, we don't consider you guys a rival anymore.
Congrats on the loss then, I guess.
S&M! S&M! S&M!

You still have affiliations here? We need to find those and kick them to the curb like we did when you wanted to continue the Thanksgiving matchup.
Online Johnny is actually right about something because he must have read the schedule for this year and next year and saw that we are not playing and have no real intention of doing so.
As far as the Quidditch tourney is concerned, it appears to be a good excuse for college kids to get out and run around and pick up nerdy girls at the end of the game. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
That Samoan dude for Texas kicked their ass.
Quiddich. The things white people come up with
British white people, that is.
We really can't say if quidditch was the product of Ms. Rowling's whiteness or her Britishousity.
damn. I thought twitter language was confusing.
Ah, the whitest of all the white people.
gotta go a little further north but those pale arse white swiss and swedish gals are hawt
I said whitest, not palest.
White as in "lets invent muggle quidditch" not white as in skin color.
We don't celebrate meaningless championships or make up fake ones and put them on our stadium.
I notice Aggy is still kissing their own butts after winning a share of 5th place in SEC football last year.

I gotta be honest, I'm still trying to figure out how your team beat our team. I mean, our guys can really fly.
What I don't get is the insistence on being ridiculous with the little brooms.
You're essentially just playing a handball version of lacrosse otherwise.
Stand behind and a little to the left of the statue of George Washington overlooking the South Mall.
It might come to you.
There's a similar effect on the giant 70ft tall Stephen F Austin statue outside of Angleton.
Don't be ridiculous.
At Kyle Field an elite 8 Quidditch appearance is the equivalent of the national championship.
