* Music/CarrieUnderwood had a 12-song streak of #1 hits on the ''Mediabase'' country charts, of which all but two also got to #1 on ''Billboard'' (those two being "Don't Forget to Remember Me" and "[[Music/RandyTravis I Told You So]]", which "only" got to #2 there). In early 2011, "Mama's Song" put an end to the streak, when it became her first song not to reach #1 on even ''Mediabase''. Since then, the streak has either been broken or continued, depending on which chart you go by, and whether or not guest singles are included, further muddied by ''Billboard'' splitting its country singles charts into two separate charts after the second single from her fourth album, ''Blown Away'', was released. The long and short of it is that "Mama's Song" remains, to date, her ''only'' single not to hit #1 on any mainstream country chart. ("Something in the Water" did not get to #1 on Country Airplay or ''Mediabase'', but did top Hot Country Songs, which factors in downloads, streaming, and cross-genre airplay.)

* ''Film/TheMightyDucks'': Gordon Bombay's first game as a court-ordered pee-wee hockey coach happens to be against TheJuggernaut OpposingSportsTeam Hawks, whose home arena displays the unbroken string of black-and-silver banners the team has for winning the Minnesota State Pee-Wee Hockey championships going back decades...except for that one single yellow-colored second-place finish banner for 1973, when Gordon Bombay was on that team. His old coach Jack Riley's still coaching the team twenty years later, and when they happen to meet before the game they reminisce a bit about the past -- specifically, Riley expressing a wish that that one second-place banner be taken down.
