Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant had been at Cashman Field many times before Saturday. But most of previous trips were as a fan. Long before Bryant became a World Series champion, National League MVP and one of baseball’s elite players, the Las Vegas native was a spectator for the annual springtime Big League Weekend. He remembers the Cubs playing the White Sox. Now, he’s one of the faces of the Cubs. “I love these games here. I think a lot of my teammates do, too,” Bryant said.
Las Vegas Lights FC owner Brett Lashbrook is insistent that at least one local player have a spot on the minor league team’s roster at all times. They wound up with six for the maiden season, including Palo Verde product Matt Thomas. It was Thomas who scored the first goal in franchise history, finding the back of the net tonight just two minutes into the inaugural Lights game in franchise history, a 3-2 road win at Fresno.
The saying was repeated all day: The next best thing to being at the NCAA Tournament is being in Las Vegas for the tournament. Being here, actually, could be slightly better. Our over-the-top parties have cheap eats, easy access to betting stations and games displayed on state-of-the-art television screens. It is a big reason why nearly 4 million visited last March. Thursday, I got a taste of the madness, Las Vegas style. I visited six properties and met some pretty awesome people along the way.
Laura Piper has been coming to Vegas to watch NCAA Tournament at @orleanscasino for more than a decade. Her team, Loyola-Chicago, finally in tourney. And it won at buzzer! What a moment with family! Vegas next best thing than being at dance. https://t.co/45XN6FHXyT
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".
