Summer Nationals- my favorite hand!!

Playing in the first day of the Roth Swiss against friends and excellent New England players, I picked up the following hand in first seat:

South

AJ5
J73

I chose to open 1 (perhaps not everyone's choice) and the bidding continued:

Now I fell from grace. The winning bid would have been 6, psyching a club void, but I  chose the pedestrian 6. West led a and I quickly went down 1. The hands were approximately these:

AK6
East

Why was this my favorite hand? As we were returning our hands to the slots, two ladies walked up to the table. "Aren't you at the wrong table?" they asked our opponents. "Oh, yes. Sorry." was the reply.
