How to use wound up in a sentence?

  1. Kristie Mewis:

    And I was so proud of these players, the way they stepped up and handled the game, considering that some of them didnt have a chance to train properly before this camp. Lavelle also scored when the United States beat the Netherlands in Lyon, France, last year for the teams second straight World Cup title. Nine of the 11 U.S. starters for the final were in the starting lineup on Friday. Notably missing was Alex Morgan, who came in as a second-half substitute for her 170th appearance with the team. Morgan, currently playing for Tottenham, had not played for the United States since the World Cup final because she was pregnant with and gave birth to daughter Charlie. Netherlands coach Sarina Wiegman was not with the team because of a personal matter that was not related to COVID-19. Wiegman, a former Dutch midfielder who has coached the team since 2017, will take over as Englands national team coach next September, succeeding Phil Neville. Lavelle struck a left-footed goal on a break in the 41st minute. Kristie Mewis subbed in to join her younger sister on the field and scored nine minutes later. Sam Mewis was among the first to embrace her sister in celebration. I was I was so nervous to shoot it, but I just wound up and gave it the best I could. And then turning around and just realizing what had just happened and seeing Sam and Alex running towards me was so special. Its a very surreal moment for me.

  3. Jimmy Smits:

    I thought I hit the jackpot with' L.A. Law,' but to have [' NYPD Blue' ] come around the way it did, for whatever the artistic reasons were, it didn't happen, and then it wound up that it came back to me. It was just like, I can't [ say no ]. That was like' Lightning can't struck twice.'.

  4. Bill Clinton:

    The problem is the way it was written and implemented. We have too wide a net. We have too many people in prison. And we wound up spending - putting so many people in prison that there wasn’t enough money left to educate them, train them for new jobs and increase the chances when they came out that they could live productive lives.

  5. Sarah Verardo:

    The program is multifaceted, what it has started for and what it has wound up becoming are obviously two different things and that’s how we have reached this crisis level of where things are today.
