Episode 10: ?The Peach Basket of James Naismith?

*the camera zooms in on an ancient lush jungle, the palms are moving away as an elephant is heard*

*all the palms are gone, showing Olmec*

Olmec: Legends of the Hidden Temple. With your guide? Kirk Fogg!

*Kirk is shown slidding down a zipline & jumping off into the usual area*

Kirk: Thank you everyone. Thank you Olmec. Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?

Olmec: The Peach Basket of James Naismith.

Kirk: The Peach Basket of James Naismith! Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Basket. Will it be *camera zooms into each team as they cheer & the usual* The Red Jaguars? The Blue Barracudas? The Green Monkeys? The Orange Iguanas? The Purple Parrots? Or the Silver Snakes? They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests, and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they have to cross the moat, and Olmec will tell us how they?ll have to do it today.

Olmec: Each team will have 1 rope. There will be a small "island" (platform) in the middle. On go, one player will swing out to the middle of the island. They will pull a hanging chain, which will release a hooked bridge that was attached to the bottom. Than, you'll walk across the bridge to the other side. Than you're partner will swing across & walk across the bridge to ring the gong *Kirk bangs the Silver Snakes? gong*. The first four teams to hit their gong will go on to the next round.

Kirk: Alright, teams are you ready?!

*the teams cheer*

Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?!

Olmec: Let?s rock!

Kirk: On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*all 6 teams swing out*

*the Red Jaguars, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, & Purple Parrots all make it across*

*they swing again*

*the Red Jaguars bang their gong first, the Orange Iguanas second, the Blue Barracudas & Silver Snakes make it across as well*

*they swing again*

*the Green Monkeys bang third, the Purple Parrots bang fourth*

Kirk: Wow, that was close! Going onto the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots! & the Orange Iguanas! & the Green Monkeys! & the Red Jaguars! Blue Barracudas & Silver Snakes gave it they?re best. That?s what really counts guys! *Olmec explains prize*

*the camera changes to the four dry teams on the top of the Steps of Knowledge*

Kirk: As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Peach Basket of James Naismith. Bur before we get started, pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec?s Temple.

Olmec: One of the most popular sports today is basketball. Invented by the Canadian native & Scottish immigrant, James Naismith contributed many new rules to sports, including helmets for football & the whole game of basketball in the late 1800s, but it wasn?t that easy coming up with the rules!

James: I wonder how we?ll transport the ball? run with it & get tackled? Nah, too rough. Oh, how about throwing it off the wall & catching it? Will there even be a wall? If there is, too simple anyway. I got it! You gotta? dribble the ball, by bouncing it on the ground! That?s it! Now what do we throw the ball into to score points?

Olmec: Originally, the basketball hoop was a peach basket, & one of the peach baskets from the first official game made its way to the Temple! Your job is to find the Peach Basket of James Naismith & bring it back here!

Kirk: Tell us Olmec, where is the Peach Basket?

Olmec: The Peach Basket of James Naismith can be found in the Ranch!

Kirk: OK. Teams: you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question about today?s legend. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. Go ahead, stomp on it!

*Green Monkeys hit the step*

Kirk: OK, Green Monkeys, since you rang in first, you would be able to answer. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next level. If you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m going to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams to make it to the bottom level *Kirk runs down there* will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. Olmec, we are now ready for the first question.

Olmec: Was James Naismith a immigrant from: England, Ireland, or Scotland?

Orange Iguanas: Scotland!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Olmec: Did James Naismith live in: America, Canada, or Mexico?

Orange Iguanas: America!

Olmec: Incorrect!

Red Jaguars: Canada!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Red Jaguars move down a step*

Olmec: Did James Nasmith invent helmets for: Football, Rugby, or Hockey?

Orange Iguanas: Football!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Kirk: Orange Iguanas, one more correct answer & you move onto the Temple Games!

Olmec: Did James Naismith invent: Baseball, Basketball, or Football?

Red Jaguars: Basketball!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Red Jaguars move down a step*

Kirk: Red Jaguars, one more correct answer & you move onto the Temple Games!

Olmec: Were the hoops originally: Peach baskets, Cherry baskets, or Orange baskets:

Red Jaguars: Peach baskets!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Red Jaguars move to the bottom*

Kirk: One more team can join them!

Olmec: In basketball, each basket inside the three point line is: 1 point, 2 points, or 3 points?

Orange Iguanas: 2 points!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down to the bottom*

Kirk: Green Monkeys, Purple Parrots, you gave it a good try, but you just came up a little short. *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Red Jaguars & Orange Iguanas are present* These two teams will be going head to head in the Temple Games, to fight to enter Olmec?s Temple, right after this!

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. But before we get started, let?s find out a little about our teams. On the Red Jaguars, we have Sean, he likes to play video games & he can juggle for 3 minutes straight! We also have Kelly, she likes to read & her favorite subject in school is Latin. Let?s hear it for the Red Jaguars! But on the Orange Iguanas, we have Josh, he likes to listen to rock music & he plays guitar. His partner is Katy, her favorite food is cherries, & she used to play the drums. Let?s hear it for the Orange Iguanas! Okay, go get ready for the Temple Games, I?m going to explain what?s gonna happen. Teams are competing in temple games to win: Pendants of Life. *shows two pendants* They?re going to need those pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games. Olmec, tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: James Naismith contemplated about have the players tackle each other for the ball. Now, you?ll be playing that way, but a little safer. Each person is standing on a beam with a stick. Try to knock your opponent off the beam with the stick. If you fall, your opponent gets a point. At the end of 60 seconds, whichever player has the most points wins a ? Pendant of Life!

Kirk: This is gonna get rough! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Sean & Katy are swinging at each other*

*both seem firm on, but Sean gets Katy off with 0:33 left*

*she gets back on & both of them fall off with 0:17 left*

*the time runs out shortly after*

Kirk: Time?s up! Red Jaguars got 2 points. Orange Iguanas got 1 point! Red Jaguars win the ? Pendant of Life! Orange Iguanas can come back, Olmec tell us about it!

Olmec: In basketball, you try to get the ball into the basket. You are going to play a variation of basketball now! Each of you will be strapped to a spinning pole. On go, you?ll grab a ball on the ground & try to throw it through the hole in the circle. The person who gets the most bulls eyes in 60 seconds wins!

Kirk: This is gonna be dizzifying. On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Kelly & Josh start spinning*

*both are doing good, even at 2-2 with 45 seconds left*

*30 seconds are left, both are tied 5-5, they both shoot, Josh makes it, but Kelly misses*

*15 seconds left, they?re frantically throwing arrows & time runs out*

Kirk: Wow, both of you guys did really good. Red Jaguars got 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? 7? 8! Orange Iguanas got 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? 7? 8? 9! Orange Iguanas win the ? Pendant of Life! Now it?s all tied up a ? Pendant each, the final Temple Game is gonna decide it, Olmec, tell us about it!

Olmec: James Naismth was the oldest boy in the family who immigrated from Scotland to Canada. Now you?ll do the same. On go, the first person will climb up the wet ramp & grab the Scottish flag, slide down, & put it in the flag holder & tag your partner. Then they?ll climb up & grab the Canadian flag, slide back down, & put it in the flag holder. The first team to get both flags in the holder wins.

Kirk: This is for the Temple! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Kelly & Katy are climbing up the ramp*

*both are even ? way up, but Katy slips back down*

*Kelly grabs the Scottish flag, slides down, & tags Sean as she jams it in the flag holder*

*Sean catches up to Katy*

*Sean grabs the Canadian flag & Katy grabs the Scottish flag & they slide down in unison*

*Sean jams his in the flag holder as Katy does*

Kirk: Game over! That?s it! Red Jaguars blazed up there, you guys win the full pendant! That makes Red Jaguars 1.5 Pendants, Orange Iguanas ?, Red Jaguars are going to the Temple! Orange Iguanas, you fought hard, you never gave up! Good for you! *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Red Jaguars* These fierce Red Jaguars are gonna see if they can retrieve the Peach Basket of James Naismith right after this!

Kirk: Welcome back. Sean & Kelly have proven themselves worthy and have earned themselves the right to enter Olmec?s temple. But before we get started, Olmec, can you give the Red Jaguars any clues about your Temple & how to retrieve the Peach Basket of James Naismith?

Olmec: You can start off in the Miner?s Cave. Crawl through the tunnel to make it into the Pit of Anguish. If you can get across, you can head into the Crocodile?s Mouth! Grab the fish from the walls & put them into the crocodile?s mouth & you can go up into the Ranch, where you can grab the Peach Basket! Or you can head into the Anaconda?s Sanctuary. Untangle the snake & attach it to the wall & go into the Sacred Safari! Find the key in the elephant?s mouth, but beware of the Temple Guards, disguised as elephants! You can go up, or bust through the wall into the Battlefield! Jump on the trampoline to reach the ladder in the Ninja?s Secret Training Chamber & climb into the Ladder of Doom! Put the correct torch into the torch holder & enter the Shriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine of the Siiiiiiilver Monkey! Assemble the statue & go into the Chamber of the Royal Containers. Dump the containers on the floor & find the key to go down, or head into the Observation Tower! Line up the telescope with the markings on the wall to open the door to cross the Stumps of Dejection! Use the 2 planks to get across the four stumps, or jump back into the Pit of Anguish. Race thorough the Hammered Nails & back to the Temple Gates! The choices are yours & yours alone! You won two pendants into the Temple. Who is going first?

Sean: I am!

Olmec: Very well, Sean! When Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gate into the temple and make your way towards the Peach Basket. Hidden inside the temple are temple guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you?re caught without a pendant, you?ll be taken out of the temple and it will be Kelly?s turn to try her luck. Hidden inside the Temple is a ? Pendant. If you find it, you get an extra life. If you can reach the artifact, all the doors in the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the artifact within three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded. And here?s how! *Olmec explains three prizes*

Kirk: Sean says it?s gonna be pretty easy! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Sean darts up into the Hammered Nails, & the third nail gets it & he goes into the Stumps of Dejection with 2:46 left*

*he figures out the puzzle & goes across, but is forced to jump down to the Pit of Anguish when the 2 doors don?t open*

*he goes into the Crocodile?s Mouth with 2:16 left*

*he gets all 9 fish & puts them into the mouth & goes into the Anaconda?s Sanctuary with 2:01 left*

*a Temple Guard takes his Pendant with 1:56 left*

*he untangles the snake & goes into the Sacred Safari with 1:19 left*

*he puts his hand in the elephant?s mouth & grabs the key & goes up into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 0:58 left*

*a Temple Guard takes him out of the Temple as he puts the base on with 0:53 left*

*Kelly follows Sean?s path & gets up into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 0:26 left*

*Kelly quickly assembles the monkey & runs into Chamber of the Royal Containers with 0:18 left*

*she hits the actuator to the Ranch & goes into the Ranch & grabs the Peach Basket with 0:12 left*

*she climbs the ladder to the Observation Tower & a Temple Guard comes out & tries to take her with 0:08 left*

Kirk: Oh, go away Temple Guard! She has the Peach Basket! Go back down Kelly!

*she breaks free & jumps down back to the Ranch*

*she dives through the door into the Stumps of Dejections, but falls head first into the Pit of Anguish when time runs out*

Kirk: Oh, so close! Good job Sean, good job Kelly! You still go home with 2 great prizes. Join us next time on another great Legends of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!

Temple Run Summary: This was a pretty good Temple Run, but it was very comical at the end. Sean went from the Hammered Nails to the Sacrd Safari, & up to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey & got taken out. Kelly followed & got the Peach Basket with 12 seconds left. She went up into the Observatory, & a Temple Guard grabbed her & tried to take her out! Sure, she only had a 1/2 Pendant, but she had the artifact too! Kirk told her to go down, she went back into the Ranch, & dove into the Pit of Anguish head first when time ran out.
