The Rams weren’t exactly hiding their intentions last January when they hired Sean McVay as their new head coach. Yes, they recognized in the youngest head coach in NFL history the type of leader they felt necessary to lift their franchise out of more than two decades of non-winning seasons. And while his age (he was 30 when he was hired) might have been a red flag for some teams, the Rams saw it as a benefit.
Slowly, awkwardly and reluctantly the Rams reported to their Thousand Oaks practice facility early Sunday morning. The abruptness and finality of their season coming to a screeching halt the night before was apparent immediately after their frustrating wild-card round loss to the Atlanta Falcons. But now, as they gathered together in Thousand Oaks, reality was setting in. There was no game to prepare for next week. No opponent to dive into or game plan to devise.
LOS ANGELES — It was bound to get weird. That much was a given. A Saturday night in Los Angeles. The sun long set over the Pacific Ocean. A dark, cloudless sky ominously hovering above to create a sinister, menacing atmosphere.
4. And finally, if it's all about last name and who pops is, then what about Jeremiah and Spencer? They played ball too. They got as far as their talent/work ethic could take them. But not an inch further - even with their dad running an NBA team. No disrespect to them at all. https://twitter.com/DailyNewsVinny/status/954037889918107648
3. And the ones who stick around and get better and create a niche for themselves are the ones willing to continue to make that investment in themselves and their talent. Day after day after the day. The one' who don't, get weeded out. Your brother is an example of the former. https://twitter.com/DailyNewsVinny/status/954037805683851264
2. Irony is, almost from the moment 99% of #NBA players showed a hint of game they’ve been coddled and entitled by the system in place. But from that system the cream always rises to the top, pushed there by talent, will and hard work. It doesn’t happen without all 3 components https://twitter.com/DailyNewsVinny/status/954037678999142400
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".
