In a routine about the Olympics in the DVD Live on Broadway Jerry Seinfeld put it this way:

"I think if I was an Olympic athlete, I would rather come in last than win the silver, if you think about it. You know, you win the gold, you feel good. You win the bronze you think at least I got something. But, you win that silver, that’s like: ‘congratulations, you almost won. Of all the losers, you came in first of that group. You’re the number one loser. No one lost ahead of you.‘ "
