stick the landing
 v. phr.— «Ted Koppel put it this way: Today’s made-for-TV conventions are to the political process what synchronized swimming is to water polo: “choreographed within an inch of its life.” And to borrow another sports metaphor, you can say this for the Republicans this year: They stuck the landing.» —“Convention appeal: A television turnoff” by Matt Roush USA Today Aug. 14, 1996.
