Suddenly Cubs fans are feeling confident enough to poke fun at their postseason prospects, or past lack thereof. In fact, one, Keque Escobedo, has invoked the name of all names among fans of a team that hasn't been to a World Series since 1945 and hasn't won one since 1908: Steve Bartman, infamous among Cubs fans as the scapegoat for the team's collapse in the 2003 NLCS.
The Knicks plan to fire president of basketball operations Phil Jackson on Wednesday morning, according to multiple reports. Yahoo Sports reported the news first, and it was later confirmed by ESPN early Wednesday. Both reports cited unidentified sources. Jackson met Tuesday with Dolan, who had become increasingly concerned about the team's long-term direction and Jackson's fitness to lead the organization, Yahoo reported.
Jimmy Butler, traded to the Timberwolves during Thursday's NBA Draft, took to social media Friday to thank the Bulls and their fans for his time in Chicago. "I truly struggle with the words because you've been so much more than just my home for the last 6 years, you've been my life!" he wrote, in part, in a caption to an Instagram post. "Chicago, I love you. Thanks for embracing a kid from Tomball [Texas] like one of your own." Chicago, What can I say?!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
