I was eight years old when my family got its first computer, which instantly gave my writing a sense of legitimacy. I awoke at hours I now find ungodly to write recaps of entire New York Yankees seasons (yes, the Yankees—their seasons were typically more interesting than my beloved Mets’).
AUSTIN, Texas -- Don't look now, but Michigan is winning basketball games with defense. The Wolverines held Texas to 37 percent shooting Tuesday. They kept the big, strong Longhorns off the glass. And they won despite not reaching 60 points. There are certainly some caveats attached to Tuesday's 59-52 road win, but it was the second straight game that Michigan's offense was just average while the defense was stellar. Michigan had no points at the first media timeout, four minutes into the game.
AUSTIN, Texas -- There's never a good time for an injury. But if Moritz Wagner's right ankle causes him to miss a few games, Michigan should be OK.Wagner rolled his right ankle in the second half of Tuesday night's win at Texas. After the game, head coach John Beilein called it a "slight ankle sprain," adding, "We don't think it's serious at this point." No x-rays were taken, as Michigan's staff didn't feel they were necessary.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
