Tony Stewart's prospects of winning another Cup title in his last run are just about, well, Up in Smoke. This will come as bittersweet news in the NASCAR Nation. Stewart is as polarizing as it gets on the circuit: loved or loathed, with few in-betweens. Fans adore his feistiness and snarky demeanor.
Thank you Dee Gordon. Thank you for honoring José Fernández. Thank you for honoring your fallen brother. Thank you for making us cry, in a good way. Your epic moment -- the first-inning home run Monday night -- won't bring back Fernández , a young, gifted man who died way too soon.
TAMPA - The thunder and lightning provided the appropriate backdrop for the Tampa Bay Bucs Sunday afternoon. They need an umbrella. A big one. It's pouring, baby. The Bucs are now perfect. Four consecutive home-opening losses.
As journalists, we are taught to be objective. Our instincts tell us not to cross that line between our professional and personal lives. Fair and balanced, without all the conflicted connotations that now brings. Bob Opsahl failed miserably at that. He tried to keep his emotions tucked away, all in one tidy box.
TAMPA - By definition, an illusion is something "that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses." Illusion: The University of South Florida's fast-track offense would ambush the Florida State Seminoles Saturday afternoon. Illusion: FSU's defense shook off some quick-sucker punches and is now ready to compete with the best teams in the land.
The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars are winless. The Tampa Bay Bucs got hammered on the road last weekend. Everybody grab an umbrella because the sky is falling! I feel for fans of our three in-state football teams. Every season begins with renewed faith and optimism.
So Donald Trump and Don King are now a "thing." Two peas in a pod. The man who defined the Art of Deal with the guy who defined the Con of the Deal. Or is it the other way around? Only in America, baby! Donnie T.
Everybody loves a fresh start, a do-over to make things right. Isn't that right, Jimmie Johnson? Mr. Six-Time faded into Mr. Irrelevant as the NASCAR Sprint Cup season rolled along. Despite early-season victories in Atlanta and Fontana, Johnson has chugged along. But lately, there's been a little bit of life, if not mojo.
Let's meet one of the 94 distinguished nominees for the NFL's 2017 Hall of Fame class. Darren Sharper is a five-time Pro Bowl safety who played in the league 14 seasons for Green Bay, Minnesota and New Orleans. He's wearing other colors now.
Joe Paterno was a great coach who should be honored for all the young men he nurtured and inspired. He was a heavenly father figure. Joe Paterno was a despicable human being who valued his legacy more than protecting innocent children from a pedophile in his midst. He should burn in hell.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
