It's easy to cry wolf against the Patriots when a call goes their way. Saturday night against the Titans, however, warranted screaming bloody murder. Here are three calls the refs missed that erased any hope that Titans had of upsetting the Patriots. Never mind the fact that it was a horrible play to begin with — a penalty is a penalty.
Down by 2, with six seconds left on the clock and a loose ball rolling down the court, Reggie Bullock had the chance to give the Pistons a perfect ending to their game against the Chicago Bulls. The two teams had been exchanging punches all game, with the Pistons being within three at the end of the third quarter. With the ball stolen away from the Bulls' Justin Holiday and fed to him on the run, Bullock could just taste victory. Well, he might have tasted it just a bit too soon.
When the Pittsburgh Pirates' asking price for Gerrit Cole was the No. 5 prospect in all of baseball, Gleyber Torres, Yankees fans were pretty confident that if that was their asking price, then Cole would definitely be sticking around in Pittsburgh for at least another year. So when the Bucs swung a trade with the Astros for four prospects that weren't even in Fangraph's top 100, the top reaction in baseball was understandably "What just happened?"
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".
