Have you ever failed?

In our last playoff game of volleyball in set #5, I missed the line by half an inch (hit it out) at 15-15 and we went to lose 17-15, 8 months of hard work to miss by half an inch. It's been a month and still when I watch the video, my heart beat goes up, adrenaline starts flowing and I feel the same disappointment when I watch myself missing on the crucial point.

So, have you ever failed when a lot was on the line for you?

I had a breakaway in rugby, only to be tripped up by a small winger a couple of meters from getting the try.. :doh:

Flipped and sunk a SeaFlea (i.e. widow maker) during a heat.
All that work to get there, and all the time and money gone in a blink.
Luckily I didn't get too banged up, though I did look like a racoon for a while.
