    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    As hinted above, I think any team with Graham Taylor managing, did incredibly well to win any games at all. Still can't believe Waddle was discarded, whilst the likes of Sinton, Thomas, Palmer, Dorigo, (oh I could go on and on, tbh) played.

    Particularly enjoyed him taking off our top-scoring striker of all time, when we desperately needed a goal in '92.

    The Billy Goat curse is supposedly over, so lets see what other pathetic excuse Cubby fans come up with for their sorry excuse of a team. At least the White Sox either really suck or are invincible, no in-betweens.

    Voted the AB's from that list, but given the chance to vote for the Spanish Football team I would have. At least the All Blacks have won something in the last 20 years...(at least i don't think Spains national team has won something in the last 20 years)

    The favourites aren't the only ones that can choke though.

    Who have SA lost to, or been knocked out by, in recent World Cups which were better than them? From my memory, only Australia in this year's WC, and the reason they are called chokers in that is because of the pitiful way they batted. They were totally sucked in to Australia's pre-match talk.

    IIRC the Spanish football team have only ever won one European Championship, which is rididculous given the talent at their disposal over the years.

    For me the biggest chocker in world sport are not even listed. The Spanish football team as mentioned already, superbly talented but just flop on the world stage to sides they should defeat.

    The Indian cricket team to a level also, all those ODI-series finals that they have lost..

    Collingwood Football Club if we're talking throughout history. They've done it consistently for over a hundred years.

    English Cricket cannot be classed as "chokers"...the simple reason being,....a choker team is a top team that can't quite make it at the top level,unfortunately,England are NOT a top team,therefore cannot be accused of choking.
    Australians all let us rejoice,for we are 1-2-3.

    I'm not young enough to know everything.
