How to use break-in in a sentence?

  3. Tampa Bay:

    I give them credit, they threw it on the net, the guys were buzzing around there and they got the break, in a game like that, I think that's how it was going to end up. It's whoever was going to get the last bounce at the end and unfortunately for us they got it.

  4. Michel Rodriguez:

  5. Sarah Palin:

    What is most disturbing is Twitter's failure to act when Miss Banks actively supported and encouraged her fans to seek out the Palin's personal home address, break in and inflict harm on the Palin family. Especially when it’s now been proven that Twitter was alerted to these threats on their platform and the lengthy history of deranged stalkers with violent intentions who have broken into the Palin family's properties and been arrested, charged and convicted by local and federal authorities. This is not a laughing matter and far crosses the line of freedom of speech.
