More than one year after the shooting death of former local prep football and NFL star Joe McKnight, the emotions among the John Curtis community are very much the same as they were moments after the killing: filled with shock, disbelief and anger.
At times, Fate can be a team's and a city's best friend, while at others it can be an evil mother lover. On Sunday in Minneapolis, it most certainly was the former for Who Dats. Because make no mistake, the Minnesota Vikings are a team with Fate holding purple and gold pom-poms. Just as New Orleans redeemed its heartbreak coupons on Jan. 24, 2010 and two weeks later on Feb. 7, Minnesotans now have their chance after decades worth of football misery and despair.
Mount Carmel junior Ellie Holzman is making it look easy. Along the way in helping guide the Cubs to their fourth consecutive Division I volleyball championship, she earned MVP honors in the title match for the second straight year, and then followed it up with once again being named the All-Metro Player of the Year. On Tuesday, the 6-foot-2 middle blocker was named Louisiana's Gatorade Player of the Year, becoming the sixth player to win the award in back-to-back seasons.
With all due respect, @LarryHolder, there is absolutely no way 2011 was worse. SF was driving, and it came down to one play, in which no one would be surprised if they scored. This play was SHOCKING. It is being called the greatest postseason play ever. It's not close.

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".
