Re: Is it OK to call it a choke and still be proud of them?
I am distressingly invested in the successes and failures of our ball club. This year featured far more of the former than latter. Incredibly proud of hanging in there after their ace gets bounced in the first. Proud of that crazy game where our AAA team beat the Cubs.
To me, 2010 was a choke. Guys were playing scared. This year they just got beat.
