In Mesoamerica, there are many groups interacting and trying to control resources. Thinking about the Fox article for the week, how is the ballgame a source of control and ideology for Mesoamerican populations? Let's imagine that you are excavating a new Mayan site and you come across a ballcourt. What would you expect to find and how would you interpret the finds? Do big events like ballgames in Mesoamerica have modern equivalents? Please give an example or two of such events in contemporary society and explain how it is similar.
