It was the lowest point I can remember, for this area, and the Lions. Thanksgiving Day 2008. The Lions vs. the Tennessee Titans at Ford Field. It was the height of the Great Recession and the Lions were in the midst of their infamous 0-16 season. I was riding down the elevator at a parking garage with a family all dressed in Lions’ garb. There were donning No.20 Barry Sanders’ jerseys, as I recall. “What do you think?’’ someone asked.
I have the utmost respect for Joe Morgan’s place in baseball history. I can understand his sentiment not wanting Performance Enhancing Drug users in the Baseball Hall of Fame. But Morgan, who e-mailed a letter to Hall of Fame voters Tuesday imploring them not to vote for PED users, needs to understand he’s way too late to the party. To suggest everybody in the Hall of Fame at this point did not use performance enhancing drugs is naive.
Count me among those who believe LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time. He is bigger, faster, stronger and as clutch as Michael Jordan. He sure looked the part Monday, making basket after basket with incredible ease to begin the Cavaliers’ 116-88 blowout of the Pistons. It was a disappointing night on every level other than seeing LeBron at his best. There are two, maybe three, legitimate box office draws for the Pistons - Cleveland, Golden State and, perhaps, the Lakers.
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".
