I’m not a poor loserPosted: January 15, 2020
Yours truly uttered this one in a conversation about a current losing streak in trivia. It is a congruent conflation of “sore loser” and “poor sport”, both describing a person who reacts negatively in a competition. “Poor” and “sore” are similar sounding words, contributing to the mashup. A big thanks to Elaine Hatfield for calling me out on this one.
