    the mayans play the ball game

    the goal of the ball game was to pass the ball around, without having it touch your hands, and to get the ball to pass through one of the rings. since the rings were so high and you weren't aloud to uswe your hands, it was extrmely difficult to get the ball through the rings. in fact, when someone did manage to get the ball through the ring it would normally end the game if not the game would end when the ball hit the floor. the mayans were around in 5000-1500 bc
