      On the other hand, there is (in North America at least) an inherent,
      connotative bias toward understanding "first" in terms of primacy of
      place or quality as opposed to "second," "e.g., "first class,"
      "second-hand," "first things" - when was the last time you heard a
      second-place-finisher referred to as a "winner"? Think Buffalo Bills!
      :-) which may offset, at least in part, a supercessionist
      understanding of "First Testament."
