This topic is pretty much the opposite of GM1's "Three temple runs that define a Legends team" topic. The premise is the same though. Every day I will hold a poll for each Legends team and you must decide 3 temple runs that bring shame to that team. What do I mean by that? These are runs that usually give a team a bad reputation due to their performance or anything else.

Day 1 - Red Jaguars: The Keys to the Alhambra (7), Blackbeard's Treasure Map (7), The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass (4)
Day 2 - Blue Barracudas: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart (5), The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelly (5), The Stone Head of the Evil King (3)
Day 3 - Green Monkeys: The Marble Armrest of Xerxes (5), The Dried Apple Half of William Tell (3), The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce (2)/The Broken Wing of Icarus (2)/Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat (2)
Day 4 - Orange Iguanas: The Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack (5), The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh (3), The Cracked Crown of the Spanish King (3)
Day 5 - Purple Parrots: The Oracle Bowl of Delphi (7), The Lost Lion Tail of Little John (7), The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman (7)
Day 6 - Silver Snakes: John Henry's Lost Hammer (6), The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan (6), The Snow Cone of Mt. Kilimanjaro (6)

Let's start off with the best team first.  :mrred:

What three runs bring shame to the Red Jaguars? Well the Red Jaguars had a lot of bad runs, so this was kind of hard. The first two were obvious though: Blackbeard and Alhambra. The last one was kind of tough though, but I went with "Charles Lindbergh". My reasoning:

Alhambra: If it was bad enough that the team only got to the temple due to an incorrect tiebreaker by the Silver Snakes, Steve and Lisa also have a terrible temple run. Lisa was awful and made no progress with 2:30 to herself.

Blackbeard: This one was also a disaster too. Sabrina was so slow and only made it through 5 rooms in 3 minutes. She had no idea what she was doing and just gave up when she couldn't figure out... the Heart Room. :roll:

Charles Lindbergh: It was either this one or "Smashed Printing Plate". That was a very hard choice, but I chose this run because the Red Jaguars should've won but Kim tried her hardest to fail miserably. This was such a piss poor attempt and the Jaguars should've had a Dark Forest win. :roll:

Honorable mentions include: Smashed Printing Plate due to Jason's incompetence and Dana's obnoxious screaming. And Queen Nzinga for the Red Jaguars having their temple run ending the way it did. :roll:

Blackbeard, Alhambra, and Smashed Printing Plate. Charles Lindbergh is a good contender as well, but at least they almost reached the artifact. The Smashed Printing Plate team was just pathetic. :roll:

Blackbeard and Alhambra, no doubt about those two. As for the last one, I'm going for 'Smashed Printing Plate'. Like PPF said, at least the team in the 'Weather Maps' almost reached the artifact. Besides, both contestants in 'Smashed Printing Plate' really bugged me. Especially Dana and her screaming.

You know what? I removed my vote for Charles Lindbergh and gave it to Smashed Printing Plate. At least in the Charles Lindbergh run, Nick was a beast. Kim was definitely a lost cause though, but they came so close like mention (mostly to Nick). In the Printing Plate run, this team was so incompetent and Jason was so annoying. My other two votes (Alhambra and Blackbeard) stay the same though.  ;)

I am going to end our poll and move onto our next team: the Blue Barracudas.  :mrblue:

The three biggest runs that people felt brought shame to the Red Jaguars were Alhambra, Blackbeard, and Smashed Printing Plate.  :oops:

Blackbeard and Alhambra were too obvious. The other one, I actually went with Anne Bonny. Ron's incompetence and stupidity at the end truly brought shame to the Red Jaguars. More so than Smashed Printing Plate in my opinion. :roll:

I was tempted to pick Charles Lindbergh because of Kim and because I really hate this run, but this time, it gets let off the hook because I feel other runs brought more shame to the Red Jaguars.

Unlike the Red Jaguars, the Blue Barracudas don't have as many disaster and failures of a temple run. With that being said, I chose Amelia Earhart, Jean Lafitte, and Mysterious Manuscript.

Amelia Earhart: Kristen spent literally 3 minutes in the temple being stupid. She couldn't climb the Wall Climb and didn't know what to do in any of the rooms. Even Kirk and Scott had to tell her what to do in the most basic rooms. Scott doesn't even get a chance to enter the temple.

Jean Lafitte: They were both slow and didn't know what they were doing either. Plus, Terry Kay probably wouldn't have even got the Silver Monkey assembled before time was up. And the way they got to the temple was a load of crap, like Alhambra.

Mysterious Manuscript: Okay, this one was the hardest choice for me. It was either this one or "Stone Head". Both runs featured a second male player spending over a minute with one objective. I chose this one over Stone Head because there is no reason the Silver Monkey should take over a minute to assemble. Even when time was up, Larry didn't even come close to assembling it properly. At least Tony has an excuse for Medusa's Lair being time consuming because the producers even dumbed down the objective. And Kate and Larry weren't that great anyways, plus the way Larry moves.  :roll:

Honorable mention goes to "Stone Head" though. Medusa's Lair shouldn't have taken over a minute to finish. And Tony was a moron in general. Silk Sash was pretty pathetic too.

I think this is a good time the end the Blue Barracudas poll. The three biggest losers are Amelia Earhart, Mary Shelley, and Stone Head,

Now to move onto the Green Monkeys.  :mrgreen:

The poll is now finally up. The Green Monkeys didn't have many big fails in the temple. But still, my votes were not easy at all. The three I chose were: Lost Lariat, Icarus, and Xerxes.

Lost Lariat - Too many mistakes in one run. Colleen missed a shot at a solo victory, Kirk told Chris to plow through the wall, and Chris was a lost cause himself. Chris was the biggest fail though for not getting Lariat out of the temple in time with 53 seconds. A disappointing run with way too many mistakes.

Icarus - The way Jason lost was so cringeworthy. He was a moron and blew every chance he got to get the Broken Wing out of the temple. Maybe if he didn't backtrack so much and have a bad temple plan, then he would've won handily. What a loser.

Xerxes - These two didn't even come close. It took Noelle almost 2 minutes to complete the bottom. Yet, contestants like TJ and David (Enormous Feather) beat it in under a minute. Pat didn't even make any progress himself. They were an awful team.

My only other honorable mention is the William Tell team. The reason why I never voted for them was because they never had a chance anyways. Although Lauren "fails as a human being" for not even making it to the cleared King's Storeroom with a minute to herself.  :roll:

I don't see Dried Apple Half anywhere in that poll. :|

Once it's put in, I'll vote for that, Xerxes, and Icarus. Dried Apple Half was hard to watch. Same with Xerxes. Both teams were incompetent. Then there's Icarus. Jason messes up big time. It was truly shameful that he didn't win.
