If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. If a time machine could take me back in time, I’d pick Bremerton, pre- and post-World War II era. Imagine what it was like in Bremerton when the town’s population exploded from 15,134 in 1940 to 72,500 in 1945? How cool would it be to jump on a ferry and follow Bremerton during its run to a state basketball championship in 1941 at Hec Edmundson Pavilion in Seattle?
It’s a time to recognize our rich sports history, and make sure that history is never forgotten. The reality is, every community needs a Hall of Fame. It’s a way of honoring excellence and connecting generations. Hall of Fame? What does it mean? I like this definition: A number of individuals acclaimed as outstanding in a particular profession or activity. That pretty much says it all. This year’s annual celebration — the 30th — happens Jan. 28 at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo.
It was the Apple Cup, his final Apple Cup, and emotions were already running a little high because of the nature of the rivalry. Washington State’s Larry Thatcher had some added motivation because he’d been told Washington coaches didn’t recruit him out of high school because they thought he was too small. Thatcher, one of the state’s toughest running backs during his days at West Bremerton High, verbally let the Huskies know what he thought about that.
Let's name Seattle's new NHL team, if it becomes official, the Guy Fielders in honor of the only Seattle hockey player this non-hockey fan knew while growing up on the other side of Pugetopolis. #SeattleNHL
Cost of doing business with NHL is going up.
Vancouver owner paid a $6 million expansion fee in 1970

NHL didn't expand again until June, 2016 when Vegas paid $500M.
Dec, 2017: Seattle must pay $650M to join the club. #NHLtoSeattle
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".
