The UNLV football team’s fourth consecutive regular season without a winning record will be much easier for fans to swallow if it prevails in Reno against UNR in the annual Fremont Cannon game next Saturday. Such is the nature of rivalries, which are in some ways the lifeblood of sports. Las Vegas is lucky to have several long-standing rivalries spread across its sports teams. Here’s an overview of some of the most boisterous.
Network executives surely weren’t irritated when the NFL passed on scheduling a mid- to late-season game between the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings in a primetime slot. They might be now. The Vikings and Rams, two teams that have combined for only one playoff appearance in the last three years, find themselves as division leaders and therefore in the thick of the race for home-field advantage in the NFC.
Forty days ago, the Golden Knights christened T-Mobile Arena by beating the Arizona Coyotes with what some called a once in lifetime performance. That’s turned out to be a lie. Oh, the Golden Knights’ home opener has secured its place in Las Vegas lore because of its historic nature and the touching tribute to the October 1 victims and first responders. But, as for the hockey, the blowout win over the Coyotes was no irregularity and probably had less to do with emotion than initially indicated.
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".
