Hey gang, welcome to another edition of the Lunch Special. Today we're joined by columnist Mark Kiszla, who will be chatting live about all things Denver and Colorado sports. Got a question about the red-hot Avs? Or maybe about the Broncos or Rockies' offseason priorities?
It’s possible for the Nuggets to get out of this funk and salvage a spot on the NBA playoffs. But, at this point, it seems impossible for Denver to save point guard Emmanuel Mudiay from being a wasted first-round draft choice. So it’s time for the Nuggets to say goodbye to Mudiay and make a trade. Why? Denver needs to acquire a point guard with the veteran savvy to run the offense under pressure and the wisdom to give guidance to rising stars Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.
Broncos Nation seems to be divided between trying to sign a free-agent quarterback or taking a quarterback in the draft. A word of caution: In more than 65 years, the Broncos have only successfully drafted one quarterback that became their primary starter and had a winning record in more than one season. Brian Griese had two winning seasons out of four, but never won a playoff game. I wonder if any NFL franchise other than the Cleveland Browns has a more futile record of drafting quarterbacks.
News: Oklahoma State WR James Washington says he has interviewed with Broncos at Senior Bowl. Views: Washington was guy I voted No. 1 on my Heisman ballot, so you know I think he'd look great wearing orange in the NFL.
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".
