Die Heart

My guess is that the existence of expressions like “do or die” and “whole-hearted” make some people think that “diehard” should be “die heart.”

” If you don’t get mad when someone talks about your favorite sports team you are not a real die heart fan!”

” As a real die heart frihoster, you should know that we value people upon their way of posting.”

Then there’s “died in the wool”:

“Prysner also ran for public office, Florida, I think on the ballot for the Party for Socialism and Liberty and he’s a died-in-the-wool socialist.”
