Portree Keeper Out for Unknown Length|
Representatives with the Pride of Portree have announced today that starting keeper Meghan McCormack would not be returning to the Pride for most of the season. They're hopeful she'll be back around the months of April or May, but when she does return, may or may not start till any type of post season in order to be in top shape.
The statement was very brief, but this reporter got the whole scoop from the witch about her sudden absence. Full story on page four!
Love is a Battlefield - a Quidditch Story
continued from A1
For those who pay attention to the world of Quidditch, the names Oliver Wood and Meghan McCormack should sound more than familiar to you. Both are starting keepers for their respective professional teams, and both played this summer for the Scottish National Team, who put up a long fought battle against the champion English team.
And if you pay attention to the gossip rags, then you also know that the two have been on a five year on again-off again relationship.
"Honestly, between the fans and the media...they made it hard to stay together," says Wood.
"We had a few supporters, but the hardcore Quiddtich fans found the two of us dating to be blasphomous. And the constant questions from the gossip collumns...it was too much to handle sometimes," added McCormack.
However, while they sat before me for this exclusive interview, the two were nothing but smiles, Wood's arm around McCormack's shoulders, and her hand resting on his knee.
"We want to come clean to the world. Our friends and family all know, and soon it's going to become too obvious to hide anymore," Wood told us with a shy smile.
"We're having a baby!" McCormack exclaimed.
I shook both their hands in congratulations, and let the two settle back in to continue their statements.
"We mainly want to bring this to light for our fans. Quidditch has some of the best fans in the whole world, and we know they take their teams seriously. We want them to accept us and know that even though we love our seperate teams, it doesn't mean we can't love each other as well. So we hope that everyone will not only respect us together, but also respect our privacy. The next few months are going to be stressful on both of us, and the last thing we need is heckling when one of us shows up to the other's matches. Even though Meghan won't be playing, she'll still be there with the team on the pitch, and I will still be supporting her."
"As long as we're not playing each other."
"Yes, when we play each other, all bets are off."
So there you have it folks! Exclusive Daily Prophet sit down with two of the hottest players in the game and how they can still love despite the rivalries. Everyone here at the Daily Prophet wish them both nothing but the best in the coming months, and hope for not only a speedy return for McCormack, but a healthy baby as well!
