    Biggest choke job in sports history?

    Yankees 2004?
    Mavericks 2007?
    Buckeyes 2006?
    I'd even throw in a Tony Romo vs. Seattle.

    Your No. 1?

    64 Phillies

    It's tough to separate the Yankees and the Mavs...

    The Mavericks were much more accomplished than the Nuggets compared to the difference between the Yankees and the Red Sox, but the Yanks did have a 3-0 lead...

    Therefore, I will just say that the Mavs are clearly the biggest FRAUDS! of those listed.

    '79 Orioles, up 3-1 in the World Series. Not only did they lose, but they only scored 2 runs total in the last 3 games, and games 6 & 7 were in Baltimore.

    Does Greg Norman count or is this team chokes only?

    For individual (dis)honor:

    Jackie Smith in the Super Bowl

    The only one that would even rate the top 10 is Yankees in 2004.

    This is tough between the Yanks and the Mavs, like TB said. But as he also said, the Yanks did have the 3-1 lead.

    How much was Norman leading by again and with how many holes? I should remember that, but I can't.
