Emmitt Smith can only remember being nervous a handful of times during his 15 NFL seasons. There were butterflies before the three Super Bowls, of course, and before the October 2002 game in which he became the NFL's all-time leading rusher. But none of those experiences compare to how anxious he got this fall when he watched high school football on Friday nights.
When the buzzer sounded, Donovan Mitchell was devastated. The Michigan Wolverines had just upset his Louisville Cardinals in the second round of the 2017 NCAA tournament, three games shy of their goal of getting into the Final Four. As he walked off the court, he tugged on his jersey, looked up to the stands and sighed. While talking to reporters in the locker room afterward, he told them he was "focusing on coming back to school and getting ready for my teammates for next year."
The announcement came Tuesday evening: Stephen Curry would not return from a sprained right ankle in time to join the Golden State Warriors for their Christmas Day NBA Finals rematch with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Losing a top-five player for any amount of time stings—well, rather, it should sting. The Warriors are uniquely built to endure absences that cripple pretty much every other team.
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".
