Sorry I'm a day late. I was working on this page, intending it to be for next week, when I realized it fits better here than the page I already had done. Nothing earth shattering, just a little less jumping around which, I think, makes for better reading.

Fun Mesoamerica fact: Pitz players didn't get paid and, were often quite poor in terms of material goods. But, at the end of each game, royals and nobles watching from above would throw gifts to the players. If they opted not to throw gifts, the players were well within their rights to run them down and take gifts from their person.

That king is played by Hizruk from Serpents of Old. Which, you should already be reading because it's incredible.

In other words, they could get gifts anyway. Although I guess the nobles had guards.

While they did have guards, they probably wouldn't stand in the way of their favorite ball players getting paid. It's a fun scene to imagine.
