Ancient Mayans playing ball pictured on remarkable 1,300-year-old stone panels
Two 1,300-year-old stone panels show Mayans playing with nine-handspan balls while carrying fancy fans.
The panels were discovered at the archaeological site of Tipan Chen Uitz in Belize in 2015, dating from about 700 AD. They are the first panels relating to ballplayers found in Belize. The images have short and complete hieroglyphic captions.
The first panel shows a ballplayer, recognizable from his pose and protective belt. He plays with a large, circular ball. In his left hand he holds an elaborate fan. It would have been almost 1.4m wide and 70cm high originally, but about 10% of the image has been lost. It appears that the panel was deliberately defaced, with one figure in particular being very scratched.
The panel has the inscription “nine handspan ball”, suggesting a measurement of the circumference of the ball. Read more.
“On the next episode of Dragon Ball Z, the Eternal Dragon is summoned once again, and right in Bulma’s backyard! In clear violation of the neighborhood leash law, have our friends from Earth finally gone too far? It’s joyful tidings on the next episode of Dragon Ball Z. Oh yeah, I almost forgot: Krillin’s indahouse!”
Okay, I’m posting this because I just realized that a lot of Dragon Ball fans may not know about Krillin being in da house. Please allow me to explain.
When Funimation started dubbing DBZ in-house, Dale Kelly served as the narrator until the end of the Cell Games Saga. Kyle Herbert took over the narrator role from episode 195 onward, and then when Funimation went back and redubbed the first 67 episodes,they just went ahead and had Kyle redub the narration for 68-194 while they were at it. So when you watch DBZ on one of the box sets, or the Funimation streaming service, or whatever, you’ll hear Kyle Herbert doing the narration from start to finish.
Of course, even if you picked up one of the old DVD releases, it might not have every single next episode teaser, because each disc had three or four episodes apiece and I’m pretty sure they only included the teaser from the last episode on each disc. So maybe the only way to see these teasers is on TV? Do they even air DBZ on TV anymore? It seems like all they show now is the Kai version.
Anyway, if you want to see Dale Kelly’s next episode narration, good ol’ YouTube has your back. Pretty much every episode featured silly narrations like this, such as “A power punch from a souped-up Saiyan! Ow. That can’t feel good.” Somewhere along the way they must have decided to tone it down a little, so when Herbert redid these episodes they changed the lines some. Although, I haven’t heard Kyle Herbert’s version of this teaser, so maybe he insisted on reusing the original copy.
The point is that if you were watching Dragon Ball Z on Cartoon Network in late 1999, this was how you found out Krillin would be returning to the show. The show that was his home. His house, if you will. And indeed, in that episode of Dragon Ball Z, Krillin was indeed, in da house.
