The staff at the Gaylord Palms is great! I can't say enough nice things about them.
We were the first team to complete the adventure. Each team had to write an original sea shanty that would be used in the event of a tie and it would be used as the tie-breaker. Of course, being the over-excited, pushy types that we are, we insisted that the office be closed so we could perform our shanty for the staff. Hey! This was potentially for $10,000 and we were going to take every opportunity to be remembered!
Capt. Bartholomew Blackheart and his crew even came in for our performance!
In the excitement, we forgot to hand one of our cameras over to a staff member, but they graciously emailed these to me today:
And what were we singing, you ask? Lucky for you there was no audio as Sue and I are known in the singing world as "The Two Tones". Neither tone is found on any instrument in this world. We believe strongly that if one can't sing well, one should sing loud.
Nonetheless, sing along with me to the tune of "Blow the Man Down."
Shiver me timbers! Me hearty's will row!
Me cap'ns me bucko! We've not far to go!
We'll find some fine wenches to share in some grog!
Me cap'ns me bucko! We'll sleep like a log!
With spyglass to starboard, I see it! Land ho!
Me cap'ns me bucko! We'll rise 'fore cock's crow!
Sink me! I spy maidens who's ankles are slim!
Me cap'ns me bucko! Godspeed and fairwinds!
