Marcello Simmons knows full well the value of the best laid plans. The special teams coordinator of the B.C Lions this week was recalling the time in 2008 when he held the same job title with the Toronto Argonauts, and thought he had masterminded the perfect trick play. Simmons’ unit worked on it all year until he became convinced it was unstoppable, and on the final day of the regular season schedule, put the work of his group into action. There was no chance it would be a failure, he thought.
The catcalls and derision started even before practice, and Chris Williams couldn't have been happier taking the heat. “Who’s the new guy?” said Travis Lulay with a smile, and it went from there. For a few minutes, it didn’t matter how long it had been since Williams had last wore a helmet in a practice and the rehabilitation it took to come back from an ACL tear that marked the end of his stay with the Ottawa Redblacks last season. He officially became a member of the B.C.
An 87-point combined performance by the offence, a game in which the defences often dominated and special teams was almost the difference… yes, not much happened at B.C. Place Stadium Friday. A few things worth noting from the B.C. Lions’ thrill-a-minute 45-42 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers:Taking a pass: You could get the Lions to agree on basically two things after scoring 18 points in the fourth quarter for their second straight come-from-behind win against Winnipeg.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
