Thanksgiving comes with only a few guarantees: Lions and Cowboys and family arguments. We may be able to tie together all three. Ever wonder why the NFL heads to Detroit and Dallas for its traditional Thanksgiving Day games? Other than, of course, the obvious reason. Various shades of blue and sliver go best with turkey. (Props to the Gridiron Uniform Database for this gem.) We can't be alone in realizing how similar the Cowboys and Lions have looked over the many years.
Houston, there was no problem... at least when it came to Survivor Series 2017. In his review of the annual November showcase from WWE, our old friend Justin LaBar writes that Universal champion Brock Lesnar, and Team RAW winners Braun Strowman and Asuka are all set for WrestleMania moments. Against whom? Well, read Justin's TribLIVE column for his thoughts on opponents for Lesnar and Strowman. As for Asuka, well... In the words of the late, great Randy "Macho Man" Savage: oooo yea!
The Steelers Nation had been challenged to turn Pittsburgh into the NFL equivalent of Gotham on Thursday night. But even things will look different even for those those fans not lucky enough to be inside Heinz Field for a Thursday Night Football game between the Steelers and Tennessee Titans for an attempted Black Out. In fact, things will look a lot like a recent New England Patriots game. The camera pictured above will provide the primary television views used by NBC broadcast from Heinz Field.
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".
