03/11/15 Grif.Net – Green Hair Day

As I was taking a walk with my little granddaughter one day, I noticed
something green in her hair. To my disbelief I pulled out a piece of
lettuce from her hair (leftover from lunch probably) and showed it to her.

“Whoa!” she exclaimed, “is there anything else in there?”

“Maybe so!” I teased. “That might be just the tip of the iceberg!”

1. After John Glenn, he was the SECOND American to orbit the earth = SCOTT

2. He came in SECOND in Presidential elections in 1944 and 1948 to two
different Democrats = THOMAS DEWEY

3. Just a few weeks after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major
League Baseball (1947), he became SECOND = LARRY DOBY

4. Many teams have lost Super Bowls, coming in second place. But this team
came in SECOND in four Super Bowls in a row = BUFFALO BILLS

5. Annie Hall won the Oscar for best film of 1977. But a much more
memorable movie came in SECOND = STAR WARS

6. While known as a great champion who won many “majors”, this golfer
finished SECOND in 19 major tournaments = JACK NICKLAUS

7. He came in first in the popular vote for US President but a distant
SECOND in electoral votes to Bush = AL GORE

8. A great racehorse, yet in the most famous contest he came in SECOND to
Seabiscuit = MAN O WAR

9. We all know the final episode of M*A*S*H was the most-watched TV drama,
but this was the SECOND most-watched = DALLAS – Who Shot JR?

10. Muhammad Ali is famous for the “Rumble in the Jungle”, knocking out this
undefeated champ in the 8th round who qualifies now for SECOND place =

Bonus: In the 1980 USA hockey victory in the Olympics, what nation CAME IN
SECOND to win the silver medal? USSR (US defeated Finland the next day,
assuring American gold, but the USSR came back to defeat Sweden 9-2 for
silver in the old round-robin style of medal scoring)
