Amazing article Borelli. So glad to read this sort of perspective here. I am, if nothing else, an archaeology nut.

Mayan cities were also well known for "ball courts", many of which remain to this day in the ruins of ancient Maya cities, and spread as far as modern Nicaragua and Arizona through their ancient neighbours. Though the exact details of the games have been lost to time, it's known that it served a key role in Mayan culture and social control, and that they were often associated with human sacrifice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesoamerica...
