Members of the Oakland University Owls and Michigan State University Spitfires get physical July 15 during their Quidditch Tournament on the lawn of the Henry Ford Museum. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” opened last week at the theater. In recognition of the premier two college teams squared off in the game invented by the book series’ author upon which the movie is based. The games were played to entertain movie goers waiting to attend the theater. Although the players did not fly on their broomsticks like actors in the movie they improvised many of the rules in a way that resembled a cross between rugby and dodge ball.
