Oh, I can't believe I didn't see the April thing-- fixing it now :D
Did the Hufflepuff Gryffindor game end already? I can't even find a time that the first match ended though, so I haven''t included it-- yet.

And since most things happen here when I'm asleep, I'm probably missing a lot of things. So if anyone thinks there are some things that can be added, we can all talk about it somewhere... maybe here, or there, or... simply ask a few other people first (it is everybody's history after all), and then maybe we can add to PFF, a History! :D
