Stubbornthusiasm

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /stub-ern-thoo'-zee-az-uhm/

Sentence: Matt smiled with stubbornthusiasm, or tried to, as he picked up his teeth, because he just knew he was right — his favorite player had been fouled in the finals, so the other team's win in the championships was null and void as far as he was concerned, no matter what that big, hairy, drunk guy with the big knuckles said.

Etymology: stubborn - tenaciously unwilling to yield (c.1386, of uncertain origin) + enthusiasm - great excitement or interest in a subject or cause (Greek, enthousiasmós "god-possessed")
