Players get one chance to make a first impression, and as far as Shakir Soto is concerned, the one he left Thursday night in his first NFL game with the Denver Broncos is a positive one. Soto, the former GAR and Pitt defensive lineman, made his professional debut Thursday night with the Broncos in a preseason game against the Chicago Bears. Playing defensive tackle, Soto entered the game on Denver’s first defensive series of the second half and played the remainder of the final two quarters.
Jack Kelly recalled freshman orientation at the University of Notre Dame in 1971. As he walked around campus, he grew excited when he saw some football players walking around, the same ones he watched on television before officially enrolling at the school. He also recalled being in awe when he would spot an assistant coach or two, but not to the same extent as when the head coach, Ara Parseghian, strolled by.
It started out as just a normal day at the ballpark for Crestwood grad Matt Wotherspoon. He went through his pregame stretching routine and threw with the rest of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders relief pitchers. From there, he retreated to the clubhouse at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, getting ready for batting practice to begin. After that, his professional baseball career took a dramatic turn. Wotherspoon was called in to manager Al Pedrique’s office. No big deal, he thought.
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".
