"This will be the highlight of your year and it's only January 5," a friend from Central Wisconsin wrote me Friday. He may be right.Thanks to all who've dipped in to see my unexpected "Tonight Show" appearance, one involving a 37 year old photo of yours truly in full 1980's reporter mode, trotting alongside Packers kicker Chester Marcol after he scored the winning TD in that season's Lambeau clash against the Bears.
Everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. Mine happened the other night. And, I slept through it.An 37 year old photo of me running off the field with the Packers' Chester Marcol after his game winning TD scamper against the Bears in 1980 became Jimmy Fallon "Screengrab" fodder, a fact lost on me until a friend sent me the video. My moment comes at about 3:40 in, if you don't want to wait.
Anyone can have a bad year, but few have had a spin around the sun as sad as the one the Dallas Cowboys had in 1967.It started with a New Year's Day loss to the Packers in that year's NFL Championship game, a 34-27 defeat that ended with the home team driving to the Green Bay goal line, only to see a shot at victory end with a game-clinching Packers interception in the end zone.It ended with another crushing loss to the champs, a 21-17 title game loss played on New Year's Eve Day in the -15...
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".
