At the conclusion of Saturday night’s Los Angeles Rams loss to Atlanta in the wildcard round of the NFL playoffs, NBC’s Al Michaels, a lifelong L.A. Rams fan, predicted that “the Rams are going to be great for a long time.” After an 11-5 season under coach Sean McVay, and the fact that they were the second youngest team in the NFL, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. But with the history of the franchise’s ownership, how safe is that prediction?
Back on December 9, Blues winger Jaden Schwartz suffered a cracked ankle while blocking a shot during a 6-1 win at Detroit. After that game, the Blues were averaging 3.33 goals per game, and had a record of 20-8-2. Since Schwartz’ injury, the Blues have scored five regulation goals in five games, and have gone 2-3. The link between Schwartz’ availability and Blues success is nothing new.
Two days after Christmas, the Mizzou football team will face the Texas Longhorns for the Texas Bowl in Houston and it’s been a while since Texas was dominant. The Longhorns went 25-2 in 2008-2009, but since have only had three winning seasons in the last eight, including the last five years of 8-5, 6-7, 5-7, 5-7 and this year’s 6-6. First year head coach Tom Herman is the third Longhorn head coach in those five campaigns.
@agroves85 Yes. The Blues signed Scott Stevens in 1990, giving up 5 first round picks as compensation. Then they signed Brendan Shanahan a year later, and the league gave Shanahan to NJ. The Blues offered Curtis Joseph and Rod Brind'Amour, but the arbitrator chose NJ's request.
When the Blues signed free agent Petr Nedved in March of 1994, Vancouver asked for Brendan Shanahan as compensation. Blues Chairman Mike Shanahan told me if the league punished the Blues again, after Scott Stevens, he'd resign. And he would have. Best owner ever. RIP Mike.
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".
