In the wake of Monday night’s dramatic National Championship game, the talk quickly shifted from one entity or one game to the legacies and futures of various individuals. The crimson chatter moved from Jalen Hurts to Tua Tagovailoa and years ago moved from Alabama as a university to Nick Saban as a legend. It’s what we do in media, and for that matter it’s what we do to a much less precise degree in bars and gyms.
This isn’t usually what I do, because at first glance, I’m writing a news story here, at least based on the headline. But that’s not exactly accurate. We don’t know with certainty on December 20, 2017 that UFC and MMA superstar Ronda Rousey is going to debut next month, but if we’re being honest with ourselves, we “know” it’s going to happen. On January 28, 2018, WWE’s second (or third) biggest event of the year takes place as the Royal Rumble emanates from Philadelphia.
I want to tell you a story. It’s a wide-ranging, galaxy-spanning tale that feels both fresh, but eerily familiar. It’s a tale of ordinary human beings doing extraordinary things through love, kindness, shared sacrifice, and compassion, but all for the sake of purpose. It has heroes and villains, and despite its setting, it could accurately be described as a war fought on both a temporal and heavenly plane.
Anybody who watched pro wrestling from basically 1993 to today absolutely should watch #RAW25 tonight. Maybe no better nostalgia show WWE could do. Stars all over this thing. We’re live tweeting it @ZoneWrestling.
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".
