During the Blues’ 2016-2017 season, coach Ken Hitchcock was grating on his team. Hitch is a taskmaster, and his drive was wearing on the players. Veteran Troy Brouwer recognized this and, as legend has it, said to his coach “Why don’t you just go away for about three days?” Hitchcock to a certain degree did, and the team developed leadership from within the locker room that helped them advance to the NHL Western Conference Finals.
What may have been the last big NFL event ever for St. Louis lived up to the billing with Kurt Warner’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Warner’s story is perhaps the greatest ever in sports, so to have it capped off at football’s summit was fitting. On Thursday, Warner held a large get together at a Canton country club for people that were part of his journey, and the respect shown was fitting.
The 2017 baseball season turns four months old this week, and it’s been a wild ride for the Cardinals. Their opening day starting eight has been decimated, their bullpen has failed them multiple times, and a healthy rotation has had serious bouts of inconsistency. With all that, the Cubs aren’t what we expected they would be (although they have turned it on since the All Star break), and the surprising Brewers haven’t been able to put together a streak to get them way over .500.
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".
