Yeah, and too bad the Great Linguini isn't a real person either. :afro:

And Strike 1 goes to Icarus. I remember the double sweep on the steps, the tiebreaker fail by the Silver Snakes, and of course Jason's chokejob in the temple run. Too bad they didn't reward Jason with the grand prize anyways. [/YouTube n00b]

Strike #2 for Broken Wing. I enjoyed the episode before the temple run and it is indeed memorable. The legend was good, the Steps of Knowledge had the double sweep, the temple games were memorable for the Green Monkeys comeback, the tiebreaker was memorable for the Silver Snakes getting an easy question wrong, and of course the temple run was memorable for Jason choking. And he gets no sympathy from me even either if he did come really close. ;)

Has Sir Edmund Hillary gotten a strike yet? If not, I am giving it a first strike now. It was one of the very few enjoyable S1 episodes from start to finish. And Tara and Danny were also one of the consistently good teams too. I remember this episode being the only time an artifact covered a historical figure that was alive at the time, the Velociraptor answer in the SoK, the temple games that Tara and Danny dominated, and the team game where the players had to turn the water off. And the temple run was exciting despite Tara taking a bad way out of the temple. And even that was memorable. Strike #1 for Sir Edmund Hillary   :mrsilver:

Going back to memorable goofy legends, I'm going to have to give strike 1 to Dried Ear of Corn based on that alone. It's not an amazing episode by any means, but the artifact itself is so bizarre that I never forget about this episode.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

I'm kind of surprised Dried Ear of Corn would get a vote so soon. That to me is one of the most forgettable episodes in the shows history. But yeah, the artifact was pretty bizarre. For such a legendary figure, I expected MUCH more than some dried up old piece of corn. O_O

I totally agree! In every other aspect the episode is very easy to overlook. But ever since the first time I saw it I've never forgotten it just because it was so silly hearing Kirk and Olmec talk about an ear of corn with such seriousness.

Hey, you associated a famous artist like Leonardo Da Vinci with a dried up Paintbrush. ;) j/k But yeah, I thought Sojourner Truth would last a little longer. Maybe even make it really far?

I feel like I should join the club and change my picture to a War Fan. Or maybe a dried ear of corn more appropriately lol.

And PS, Silver Horseshoe has been removed from the list, which was already eliminated. Please pay attention while updating these lists. ;)

And Strike 1 goes to Missing Eye. :mrsilver: I don't think we've given this one strikes yet. It was memorable for the four way tie on the steps, the interesting temple games, and of course the ending to the temple run. Time for this one to go.
