Way back in January, I made a comment about the Hogwarts houses as they equate to baseball players.
FYI, houses of Harry Potter in baseball terms:
Hufflepuff: Kirk Reuter
Ravenclaw: Greg Maddux
Gryffindor: Brian Wilson
Slytherin: Roger Clemens
Then yesterday I made a similar comment on twitter:
I just realized that there's almost no difference in my mind between La Masia and Hogwarts.—

@runofplay Xavi = Ravenclaw, Pique = Gryffindor, Busquets = Slytherin, Pedro = Hufflepuff?—

Yes, I probably should have chosen Puyol for Gryffindor instead of Piqué.
I like the Harry Potter books. I don’t love them. But one thing I think J.K. Rowling did get perfect was the general attributes of the four houses at Hogwarts. Definitely more fun and easier to remember than any Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
They’re also almost particularly suited for evaluating athletes and avoiding a lot of the standard athletic clichés.
