According to ESPN The Magazine presents Answer Guy...
Why is a player who comes through under pressure called "clutch"?

The likeliest inspiration for the use of clutch lies in the tightening or clutching sensation a player feels when the pressure is on. This "clutching" most often manifests in the throat area, which may explain "clutch"'s antecedant - "choke." And, yes, "choke" is an automotive term. Big deal.
Try being "clutch":
  1. Click on the "free iPod book" graphic

  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
  4. I might win some iPods
