Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 THE LEGEND OF THE ROMANS: ENTERTAINMENT "'It is scarcely possible that the eyes of contemporaries should discover in the public felicity the latent causes of decay and corruption. This long peace, and the uniform government of the Romans, introduced a slow and secret poison into the vitals of the empire. The minds of men were gradually reduced to the same level, the fire of genius was extinguished, and even the military spirit evaporated.' Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off its cares; the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for just two things----Bread and Games!"Juvenal -The gladiator games were very famous in Rome.-People stayed in the stadiums for hours to support their favourite chariot racer or their favourite gladiator.-Romans made the Colosseum for gladiator games.-All of these games were held for community entertainment.-The Gladiators fought because they thought that if they die, they will go to heaven.-Gladiators are really similar to Professional Athletes of today because when a Gladiator got injured, he received the best medical treatment in Rome same as Bastian Schweinsteiger, a german footballer who had to get stitches for his injury in the World Cup final.-Gladiators were kind of like in a team because they had sponsors and they also had fellow gladiator friends.-The Colosseum can hold over 50,000 people and the public, who were watching were looked after by the authorities really well. -Chariot racing was also popular in Rome.-Chariot's are pulled by 4 horses with a racer sitting on top of the chariot.-The Circus Maximus was specially made for Chariot racing fans with over 300,000 spectators.-Many famous horse racers nowadays are similar to the Roman Chariot racers because those racers used 4 horses and racers nowadays use only one horse.
