UPPER MERION >> There’s a concert film showing on cable these days called, “The End of The End,” detailing the final concert played by the old rock band Black Sabbath. It could also suit this Thanksgiving morning’s meeting between Upper Merion and Norristown, being billed as the final time these two programs will play each other pre-Thanksgiving feast. At one time, these two proud programs were the only game in town when it came to a Turkey Day pigskin show.
NEWARK, Del. >> The Delaware 87ers were about to travel to Virginia for a preseason scrimmage, and that meant the general manager had to make the arrangements. At that level, the NBA’s G League, the general manager always makes the arrangements. “Parking passes, and who gets them,” Elton Brand was saying the other night. “Do we have access to the internet in the building? Community relations. The press. Where can the players get 10 percent off when they buy something?
UPPER DARBY >> The two thoughts will come on schedule, which is as soon as Joe Gallagher wakes up on Thanksgiving morning. One, then the other. In an instant. Guaranteed. The first: It would be nice if St. James and Chester would still be playing a holiday football game. The other: At least Haverford is Haverford and Upper Darby is Upper Darby and some things are eternal. Gallagher is the football coach at Haverford, and that means he will have something to do Thursday.
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".
