Teams that win the "Super Bowl" will often astound.
Making progress toward a goal is "gaining some ground."
Preventive "self-instruction" will best health surround.
Source of germ reproduction is a "breeding ground."
Stases on the "balance beams" will bearing keep bound.
Midway between the extremes is a "middle ground."
Facing a "collision course" will trouble compound.
Retreat from a stronger force is "giving-up ground."
Honest adjudications will "good-faith" expound.
Thoughtful consideration is a "common ground."
Comfort that's "hunky-dory" will pleasure redound.
Familiar territory is a "stomping ground."
Creating a mad "brain-child" will many dumbfound.
Imagining gone hog-wild is "breaking new ground."
Storing useless "balls of strings" will reason confound.
A place for unwanted things is a "dumping ground."
An accomplishment "hard-won" will delight resound
Location for trial-runs is a "proving ground."
