The dream that had died suddenly had been revived and so Joe Dudek had a decision to make. It wasn’t as easy as you might think. Would he do what so many other dreamers were doing in the crisp fall days of 1987? Would he do what he’d already twice said he would not — cross a picket line for one last chance to prove he belonged? Dreams die hard, although Dudek didn’t really have many about the NFL until late in his time carrying a football at Plymouth State in New Hampshire.
In the opinion of the Fraternal Order of Farrell Firers, Red Sox manager John Farrell has nothing in common with Terry Francona, his old pal and the clubhouse leader in World Series rings with two to Farrell’s one. But if Farrell ends up winning the AL East in a week or two, he will have something in common with another successful Sox manager of yore, Bill Carrigan. If things end up that way, the FOFF may lose its collective mind.
Thirty years ago this week the NFL came to a grinding halt but that hasn’t slowed down Talk of Fame Network. Co-hosts Ron Borges, Rick Gosselin and Clark Judge decided to revisit the 24-day strike of 1987 this month through the eyes of those most deeply involved – the strikers, the players who replaced them and the coaches who worked uncomfortably on both sides of the line.
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".
