I was wondering if the expression “play spoilsport” is used by native speakers. The examples I found on GoogleBooks were from books, mainly by Indian writers.
Do the following sentences sound natural ?
a. We were all psyched about going out in the field and playing soccer, but the rain played spoilsport .
b. We were all psyched about going out in the field and playing soccer, but as soon as we went out to play, the rain became such a spoilsport.
If not, what expression do you guys recommend that is commonly used by native-English speakers.
