Lindsay Brauner (LB): I'm here with Nick Mertz, captain of the Cal Quidditch team. Nick, thanks for joining us.

Nick Mertz (NM): Yeah, no problem.

LB: What did you think of the two guys who auditioned today, DJ Holt and Cameron Jordan?

NM: Yeah, I was really disappointed.

LB: DJ, Cameron, how do you guys think that your try-out went today? Cam, let's start with you-how'd you do out there?

Cameron Jordan (CJ): As to be expected, I dominated the field.

NM: They were huge, so we were expecting them to be really good, really athletic, and really good with the physical aspect, like tackling, but surprisingly, they weren't.

CJ: I am a winner. I am a mighty sun. I cannot be stopped. And forever I will shine.

LB: Okay... DJ, how did you do out there competing on the Quidditch pitch?

DJ Holt (DH): Whatever he said.

NM: They're kind of uncoordinated. They fell around a lot.

LB: They seem like they're pretty positive about the experience. Do you guys think you made the team?

DH: No doubt.

LB: Did they make the team?

NM: No, they didn't.

LB: Are you intimidated, looking at the level of play out here? Do you think you can keep up?

DH: Oh, definitely. I'm out of their league.

LB: Cameron, how do you feel?

...

LB: Are you feeling a little bit religious about the Quidditch experience? Is that what i'm seeing on your face here?

CJ: Inner peace brings inner happiness. If I exude happiness, others will come.

DH: I'm an athlete.

LB: What does this spirituality and what you're exuding have to do with the Quidditch field?

CJ: For it is not spirituality that I seek, but it is excellence within the sport itself.

LB: How do you... looks like he's done. He's ready to get out there on the Quidditch field and compete.

LB: Even though Cameron is a team booster, he's just not going to get a spot on the team at all?

NM: Yeah, no, I mean, we just didn't have any room for them at all.

DH: Look at me, I'm big; I intimidate everybody.

NM: We can only have 21 people play at once in a game, by league rules.

DH: Yeah, I feel far superior to the people out here.

NM: They just didn't make that cut.
