It's hard enough choosing an all-time Detroit Tigers team for a franchise has been playing ball for 117 years. Picking the best four to ever wear the Olde English D? Nearly impossible, especially when you consider there are more than two dozen former Tiger players and managers in the Baseball Hall of Fame with two more on the way this summer. But that's exactly what we've done. Using a mix of stats, lore and barstool debate, we have settled on the Mount Rushmore of Tiger greats.
You probably have something better to do on New Year's Eve afternoon, like take a nap and rest up for a big party night. If you're looking for something to do other than shoveling snow, then maybe the Detroit Lions' season finale against the Green Bay Packers is an option. This game wraps up the season for the Lions and Packers, as they've both been bounced from playoff contention. You can follow all the action and chat about everything Lions in our live chat.
A week ago, it looked like the Detroit Lions' regular-season finale against the Green Bay Packers could make or break the Lions' playoff hopes. Turned out, those hopes were broken in the Lions' 26-17 loss to the scuffling Cincinnati Bengals. The Packers had already been eliminated from postseason consideration. So, this Sunday's Lions-Packers matchup at Ford Field (1 p.m., Fox) has been reduced to a bragging-rights game. Exciting, huh? Gamblers may derive something worthwhile out of the game.
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".
