Thus far the sports world in 2008 has been about one thing. Choking. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many teams fold under pressure. With the impending Olympic games, I’m sure we’ll see at least a dozen more athletes/teams collapse before our very eyes, only to be a punchline on this website.
So I’ve decided to throw this out to the readers. Who is the biggest choke job thus far in 2008? If you think someone was left off the list, drop it in the comment section.
