What is the most important sporting event? Some may say the Superbowl, the Champion's League, the Olympics, or the World Cup - but in the early 12th century, there was one sport that could decide the course of politics. The Creator's Game, or stickball, was not for fun and recreation, but rather a way of developing young men into battle-hardened warriors. At times, the game could substitute for conflicts between tribes. The Creator's Game was more than a game, but a ritualistic ceremony that celebrated the spirit of life itself.
