Mike Lupica used to have some interesting conversations with Mike Ditka when he was getting ready for The Sports Reporters on ESPN. “We were sitting in the green room at ESPN getting ready and Ditka would wander in. One time he showed me a picture,” Lupica remembered. Look what I (Ditka) wore and look at what they (current NFL players) wear. I was much more conscious of protecting my head wearing that (old helmet) than they are wearing this.
Danica Patrick’s Instagram feed is full of yoga poses, ocean dives, wine drinking while she seemingly loves the life she worked hard to create for herself. So is it that good being Patrick, who was recently on vacation in the Bahamas? “I have a pretty good life, I’m not going to lie. There were many times on vacation where I said is this real life, because this is pretty ridiculous.
Craig Hodges never thought his career was going to end when he was only 32. He was one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA, won the 3-Point Shootout in 1990, ’91 and ’92, and a well-respected teammate on the back-to-back NBA champion Chicago Bulls. But the Bulls released him after the 1992 season, and no other NBA team came calling. His NBA career was over. Hodges traces the end to October 1991.
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".
