WASHINGTON — The celebration ceremony for John Wall’s and Bradley Beal’s first tandem All-Star honors didn’t exactly go as planned. The Wizards’ backcourt stood together before last Thursday’s tilt against the Celtics in downtown D.C. with Wall looking particularly dapper … because he was in street clothes, still an untold number of weeks away from returning from arthroscopic debridement surgery on his left knee.
WASHINGTON — The Olympics can be a stressful affair for the athletes involved. Most have trained the better parts of their lives, possibly for one single shot at glory on the world’s biggest stage. So it’s nice to see that some of them are finding time to have fun at the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang. Yes, that’s two Olympians bobsledding a pallet jack down some sort of … I don’t know, parking lot? That’s good push, solid form, and surprisingly effective steering of a hydraulic storage tool.
WASHINGTON — The idea that offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships, was born not in college basketball, but the NCAA’s other money sport. Legendary Alabama football coach Bear Bryant has seen the adage mete out for his own school on the gridiron. But can a defense carry a college basketball team to a title? What about the best defense of all time? Tony Bennett’s Virginia Cavaliers may provide our best test study to date this year.
@tracytran It's as if they'd called last year's Super Bowl over, turned away from the game, and started debating which Falcons player should have been MVP, only to flip back to action late in the 4th quarter
Really, though, how can NBC call an Olympic ski race over with a bunch of racers left, have one of those racers shockingly beat everyone, then call that race again before it's officially over?! #Pyeonchang2018
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".
