Re: Is it OK to call it a choke and still be proud of them?
But of course.
They choked, big...but they are still our ballclub.
I was rather sure after watching the grounder bounce of Rolen that the season was virtually over for the Reds. I could see the scared look in their eyes. But, but did not matter - still watched what I could, still rooted for them to the very end.
They a lot of good youngsters who got a little bit more post season experience this year. And watching a team celebrate a playoff win on their own turf, that has to hurt. Let us hope they never forget it.
But, even were they to go back into the dark abyss they were in six years ago again...I would still lovingly follow them. Once and always a Reds fan.
