Blurting

Commentary

Etymology

To blurt is to say quickly whatever comes first into your head (Oxford English Dictionary).

Notes

During the play-off match to determine the third place finish at the Quidditch World Cup in 2014, the brooms of US teammates Darius Smackhammer and Lucas Piquery were locked together due to the flying skills of Japan's Seeker, Noriko Sato. It was not considered to be a foul because they were on the same team (Pm).
