Before we start I'll just put in a confirmation that Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup owns... everything else on my computer. Just completed necessary training today for my first match against Raveclaw and I totally owned their blue asses with 230-10. And that was because I could not catch up in time to snatch the ball away from whatever the hell his name was. Greatest thrill of course was catching the Snitch. Harry could have an extra boost, so I lined him up and blasted him all the way and just picked the Snitch off the air. Neat.
OK, so we were in the Rec Room (again), me and Kaiyan versus Hans and Elton. Not me, they wanted O-ya-peh-ya-som and well, it always turn out to be the best versus the utter worst. And what's more I started off with a very good chance with a solid, but I knocked the other ball sitting right behind my bridging hand accidentally. Sheesh.
So then after that I was on fire, with some shots that surprised myself, and then I ended up having to do an angle shot. Now I was confident because it was a straightforward angle, and there weren't any balls I could see that would foul me, even though my last ball was surrounded by three of their stupid stripes. So angle, ready, fire! And wow! The cueball bounced off the wall cleanly, and ran straight into the centre pocket behind it!
I just collapsed on the floor laughing, and man you should have seen Hans. Hans was like totally hysterical and shrieking with laughter. And the game paused for like 40 seconds before resuming with me still giggling. So we came to the black ball (although it was substituted with another cueball because Kaiyan pulled the stop too fast, causing the black ball of all things to get stuck in the holding rack). It was probably a slicing shot, so I whacked and the 'black' just ricocheted off to what I thought was nowhere. But then it bounced back from the cushion and rolled a full diagonal length to drop neatly into the side hole.
Score, baby. Score.
