There’s no way to explain this. The Minnesota Vikings, down 24-23 after watching Drew Brees lead the Saints to 17 points in the fourth quarter, were at their own 39 with 10 seconds left. Winning the game would take something ridiculous happening, like a couple of pitches, or a throw to the sideline that somehow set up a long kick. Or, Saints safety Marcus Williams could just fail to do the only thing he had to do. It’s very difficult to put into word how inexplicable this play is.
Jacksonville jumped all over Pittsburgh in their divisional round game today, but the Steelers proofed indefatigable. As I write Ben Roethlisberger is trying to lead a drive with 3:15 left in the game, down 42-28. He wants this game. What he doesn’t want, though, is to run this football. Sure, the Jaguars bit on that “fake.” Looking behind you with desperation in your eyes is next-level. They should add it to Madden. Wait!
Lane Kiffin long ago dispatched with the conventional coach’s persona. He is not above the fray. At all. Here he is reacting to his old boss, Nick Saban, being on the hunt for yet another offensive coordinator:His re-tweet game is strong, too:Kiffin is not afraid to go after Saban, the greatest coach of all time, nor does he hesitate to call out voters for the national polls, and he’s honest when discussing players he once recruited.
Going to miss @LukeKerrDineen so much, but I know he’ll be great making computers or whatever is next. He wrote approximately four million posts for FTW but this was my favorite: https://t.co/gSIBXZPNlO
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".
