Examples of uphill in a Sentence

  1. Alden Abbott:

    I think it's safe to say it's an uphill climb, but as lawyers normally do, belt and suspenders approach, when in a suit against a public official or any lawsuit for tort, which is basically what this seems to be, you're going to put down any defense that you think might be successful, immunity is only one out of many, and I suspect they're going to put a lot more on the First Amendment and the lack of being able to prove incitement. ... So if (immunity) were the only defense it would be an uphill defense, but it's only one of many responses.

  2. Geoff Ogilvy:

    It's an optical illusion on the second shot, it's uphill, but it looks downhill. It plays a fraction longer than you want it to. The stance you have wants you to hit a draw. But if you miss a shot with the ball above your feet, it's often to the right. And that's where all the trouble is.

  3. John Daly:

Not like some of the guys, but I just hit it in good positions and I left John Daly those six or seven pins that were back that I left John Daly good uphill putts.

  4. Yvonne Anderson:

    It definitely was untimely to have these issues, what can you do? We’re an hour away and hit traffic. We tried to come out and there were camera issues. In the end you have to take what you’re given. We already faced an uphill battle.

  5. Steve Vladeck:

    The result is not especially surprising given the uphill battle The Federal Government faced in defending such a content - based speech restriction. But the implications of the Court's decision to save the rest of the statute are potentially quite significant, how courts should treat the rest of a statute when one provision is unconstitutional is at the heart of the major Obamacare challenge the Justices are set to hear next fall.
