look up any word, like half chub:
1. verb; in sports, to lose a relatively important game.

2. verb; the act of choking. See also: 2007 New England Patriots.

3. verb; the obstruction of the flow of air into the lungs.
1. On February 3, 2008, Bill Belicheat and his crew experienced the biggest choke in the history of all of sports.

2. How a team with a perfect record can manage to lose to a Wild Card seed in the Superbowl is, indeed, the definition of choking.

3. Quick! Somebody dial 911 and send the ambulances to Phoenix...Brady just CHOKED!

Has little or nothing to do with anticipated results. It's not limited to sports or competition. You can choke on an assignment for work, choke in an attempt to seduce a crush of yours. Jordan missing a free throw. You can choke anywhere, anytime.
Choking is when you had control, and failed to execute.

What happens is you are suppose to be focused on what your eyes are viewing. But your weak mind chooses to worry about something negative whether real or not, past or future.

It's bigger than that
Michael Jordan would be considered one of the most clutch professional sports players of all time.
Only you know when you choke. Its a distinct feeling. Choking doesn't give a crap about expectations.

A tiny hole on the side of a glass piece used to get "a better hit" when smoking marijuana. Your finger is placed over the hole as you first start to inhale and then taken off while still inhaling causing more air to get into the pipe which in turn alows for a bigger hit.
"Dude let the fuk off the choke!"
