2nd!!1!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Yeah being first is great and all. You get to be a pioneer. The door kicker. Boldly go where no man has gone before!
But without someone following behind you to press on and keep carrying that banner forth, you're pretty much just a goon out there by yourself!

So let this thread be for all those runner-ups!

Better than their firsts:
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Wars II: The Empire Strikes Back
World War II: The Hun and The Empire Raped

Famous seconds:
Buzz Aldrin - second man on the moon
Larry Doby - second colored in baseball
K2 - second tallest mountain on the planet

worst seconds ever:
