It's 7:02 p.m.: just minutes until first pitch. A group of tired workers huddles in an office just a few paces away from the freshly mowed grass and manicured dirt of Safeco Field. With ball caps askew, foreheads damp and well-earned sodas in hand, they stare intently at a screen, admiring the day's work. As pregame festivities come to an end and the last note of the "Star-Spangled Banner" fades, a choir of high-school-aged kids exits stage right. "Watch the line!" a voice bellows in the office.
Here's a roundup of what national media members had to say following the Seahawks' narrow win over the 49ers Sunday in Seattle. Sure, the Seahawks rebounded after a week-one loss in Green Bay and beat the 49ers. But it sure wasn’t pretty. The offense continued its touchdown drought into the fourth quarter, needing a late connection to Paul Richardson to stave off the 49ers at home in a 12-9 win. The defense kept the Hawks in the game, keeping San Francisco out of the end zone all game.
To say head groundskeeper Bob Christofferson is dedicated to his craft is an understatement. To say he’s attentive to detail undersells how obsessive he is about the field he’s in charge of keeping perfect each and every day. It’s 7:02 p.m.: just minutes until first pitch. A group of tired workers huddles in an office just a few paces away from the freshly mowed grass and manicured dirt of Safeco 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 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".
