With the exception of a few consolation prize-winning legends (Susan Lucci, Al Gore, and the Buffalo Bills come to mind for their mediocrity), most runners-up aren't even remembered. But now the not-so-amazing achievements of those who faltered on the way to the top get their due, including:
These 200 quirky accounts of almost-claims-to-fame may sound second-rate, but don't second-guess their superiority. They'll leave you feeling like you've won a gold medal-not a booby prize.
- The second tallest U.S. president
- The second man to set foot on the moon
- The second most dangerous animal in the world
- The second highest monument in the United States
- The second worst sports team of all time
