One of my favorite things about Latin America is their love for sports like soccer. Latin America has a bunch of interesting sports unique to the culture. One of the oldest games is called Basque Pelota. This sport involves curved rackets and a ball which is bounced off a large wall. It may seem very similar to the elementary school game "wallball," but don't be fooled because this game is very intense. Here is a youtube video of athletes playing the game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JwZOqALcN4.
