Since the first little league team was fielded, the bane of the game has been the little league parent.You know the one I’m talking about. He is the frustrated should-a-been major leaguer who played right field on a high school baseball team who couldn’t beat the Little Sisters of the Poor.But, he did get a hit once when his team was far enough behind that the coach put him in. He’s easy to spot. He sits right behind the backstop in his logoed cap. He won’t let you overlook him.
Who says there’s no Santa Claus? The Yankees had no more than put their stocking above the hearth, and Giancarlo Stanton, the National League MVP, showed up in it.I’m not sure who I feel sorrier for, my son in law’s dad or my stepson. My son in law’s dad, Ron Rogers, is a lifelong diehard Cleveland Brown’s fan. My stepson, Cliff Dees, lives in Ft. Lauderdale (poor soul) and the only major league baseball team around him is the Marlins.
I have long admired Texas A&M for its traditions, its conservative leanings, its association with military values via the corps … and along with the fact that my daughter is an Aggie.No university that I’m familiar with has a stronger bond among its alumni.I was saddened by the tragedy that ended the annual bonfire. In 1979, when I got to play golf in the Tiger Tale with Tom Wilson, then the Aggie football coach, I was elated. In fact, just last week I bought a brand new Aggie T-shirt.
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".
