HUN-HUNAHPUAlso known as HUN-HUNAPHU, ONE-HUNAHPU, GOD-S
God of Fertility and Football
Also known as God S. S is for Sport! A wizard of the dribble, he was unfortunate enough to come up against XIBALBA, the Underworld Team, in the Cup Final.It all started when he was playing football with his sons HUN-BATZ and HUN-CHOEN, with brother VUCUB-HUNAHPU in goal. They made such a noise shouting to each other "pass it this way" and "get into him sonny" and "that ball was never off-side" that they disturbed the Underworld beneath the field.
VUCUB-CAQUIX, Lord of the Underworld, was very irate and sent messengers summoning HUN-HUNAHPU and his brother to the Underworld Cup Final. Along the way there were many dangerous intelligence tests which, being more brawn than brain, they failed miserably. But more humiliation was to come when the XIBALBA Team walked onto the field.
Game to the last, he managed to pass some sacred spittle into her hand. We did say he was wizard of the dribble.
