HOUSTON - It was arguably one of the best World Series games ever. And while watching the game on TV was one thing, being there to see it in person -- an entirely different experience. "The game was amazing last night, it was unbelievable," said Nick Purcell, who went to World Series Game 5. "It was pretty, pretty incredible," said Nick's dad, Keith Purcell.
HOUSTON - In the middle of all the Minute Maid watch-party action, also among the crowd are several workers just as excited. Many of them are like Henry Sais, a lifelong Astros fan who couldn't be more thrilled his team made it to the World Series again. "To tell you the truth, I was an Astros fan since I was 5 years old. Grew up watching Cruz and Nolan Ryan," said Sais, who is working World Series games.
HOUSTON - Of course with the Astros making it to the World Series, many fans are scrambling to get to Tuesday or Wednesday’s game in Los Angeles. But if you're planning to make the trip -- you better be ready to dig deep into your wallet. It's a chance to see baseball history -- the Houston Astros in the World Series. So what will a trip to Game 1 or 2 cost you? KPRC 2 looked at airfare, hotels, and, of course, tickets to the game, leaving Tuesday to make it to the game, and returning 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".
