Sitting in a San Diego bar a year ago and pondering the idea of streaking Super Bowl XXXVIII in Houston, Mark Roberts' emotions drifted to a place they don't often visit.Fear. "They'll kill me down there," said Roberts, a native of Liverpool, England. "That's Texas -- they'll execute me.
Editor's Note: Mark Roberts made headlines again this weekend when he achieved his lifetime goal: He streaked the Super Bowl. But before the England native stripped down to next-to-nothing at the start of the second half in Houston, Page 2 had already told his story. Here's a look at our profile of Roberts from March 2003:The letter arrives in Mark Roberts' mailbox each time any English soccer club plays abroad.
GANGNUENG, South Korea -- As she grabbed the puck at center ice and danced her way towards the goal, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson knew exactly the move she had planned for the biggest penalty shot of her life. She called it "Oops I Did It Again," a forehand-backhand-forehand-rope-a-dope that she had spent four years perfecting for a moment just like this.As Lamoureux-Davidson headed towards the goal, everyone in the arena rose to their feet. The game was tied 2-2. So, too, was the shootout.
Super cool to be at the @Nike store yesterday and see the impact of the @usahockey women’s gold medal in person. Although the team wore the same jerseys as the men in Korea, family after family walked up and referred to the sweater as the “women’s” or “gold medal” jersey. @espnW
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".
