And like that, it was all over. The Vancouver Whitecaps fell by a score of 2-0 in Seattle (2-0 also in aggregate) and therefore have officially been eliminated from the MLS Playoffs, ending their 2017 season in the process. To make matters worse, both goals were scored by one of the Whitecaps archnemesis and MLS super villain, Clint Dempsey. Yes, the man nicknamed â€œThe Deuce,â€? the same guy who refers to his scoring prowess as â€œbanging Gsâ€?
There are three undisputed, universal truths: death, taxes, and the Vancouver Whitecaps are a much better team when Yordy Reyna is in the lineup. Before Reynaâ€™s debut as a substitute in the 62nd minute of the â€˜Caps horrific 4-0 loss in Chicago on July 1st, the Whitecaps had a record of 6 wins, 3 draws, and 6 losses. After the Peruvian started to get regular minutes, his team has picked up 9 wins, 3 draws, and 4 losses. Coincidence?
It was only a matter of time. After signing Stefan Marinovic, an accomplished starting goalkeeper, people wondered. Is this the heir apparent to David Ousted? Ousted’s contract is up at the end of the season. On Saturday, Ousted wasn’t given much help from his teammates. The Whitecaps were outclassed in every way, leading to a 3-0 win by the New York Red Bulls in Harrison, New Jersey. It was the second-straight match Vancouver has lost 3-0 with Ousted in net.
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".
