1,000-Year-Old Ball Game Statue Unearthed in Guerrero, Mexico
An ancient granite statue depicting a player from a pre-Hispanic ball game, which could be over 1,000 years old, was discovered recently in the pre Hispanic site of Piedra Labrada, in the municipality of Ometepec, Guerrero. This element was a part of one of the five spaces registered in the area, dedicated to the practice of this ancient ritual; it is also one of the biggest located in the Costa Chica region.
The finding took place some weeks ago, when members of a community settled in the surrounding area were installing a water pipe. This event was reported to the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in that entity.
This element was discovered in the north section an area where the biggest ball game platform is located. The ball game court has an “I” shape and is up to 40 meters [131.23 feet] long.

Well let me tell you, it was quite the pragmatic purchase. It has endless uses in my morning routine.
Such as making the bed:
Getting things off high shelves:
Reaching the remote when it’s too far away:
And assisting me when I ran out of toilet paper:
I don’t know how I survived life without it.
Now I need an Uruk Hai scimitar
