How to use finish in a sentence?

  1. Brandon Wolf -LRB- left -RRB-:

    At the time of the shooting, my focus was very narrow. It was : If we can just get this person elected or if we can just get this piece of legislation over the finish line, then we'll have done the 49 victims proud, but as I get further and further into the work, I realize that we have so much more to do. And if we're really going to honor the victims, we have to fundamentally change the way we treat one another.

  2. Shanya Robinson-Owens:

    I don't want to base it off money and then I don't like the school and not finish.

  3. Herschel Walker:

    Everybody realizes that regardless of any disagreements that do or don’t exist, everybody needs to focus on one thing: helping Herschel get across the finish line.

  4. The Jets:

    Inspired by a Stealth Fighter Jet, the new helmet shell features a matte black finish, the Stealth Black helmet also includes a chrome green face mask, which is an extension of the team's current green helmet shell. The helmet decal has also been updated with a white keyline – pulling together all three team colors on the helmet – green, white and black.

  5. The Canadians:

    In all honesty, it was very anti-climactic for us to lose in a shootout, because it didn’t feel as if you lost a game, it almost felt like unfinished business. So going into this gold-medal game, regardless of who we play, we’re here to finish business and win a hockey game.
