WILMINGTON — Graham Smith already knows how Wilmington’s annual Thanksgiving game against Tewksbury will end. The Wildcats senior quarterback doesn’t know the score, who’s going to win, or who’s going to make the big play or the big uh-oh. But he’s certain of this: “The game will end with me crying and my mother holding me up and supporting me, like she’s always done.
The Tradition has become quite the tradition, with an annual who’s who of sports legends from Boston and beyond getting a hearty welcome as they take a bow at the Garden. This year’s event, to be held next Tuesday, is the signature fundraising event of the venerable Sports Museum. The latest inductees include Dave Cowens of the Celtics, Willie McGinest of the Patriots, Jason Varitek of the Red Sox and international tennis star Martina Navratilova. And . . . wait for it, wait for it . . .
This is everyone’s latest take on how the remainder of the 2017 regular season is going to play out for the Patriots: Only one so-called “big game” remains. That would be Sunday, Dec. 17, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Duh. Here we go again. Everyone’s on board. It’s all Patriots all the time, and heaven help anyone around here who dares to run against the Patriot grain. How crazy have things gotten around here?
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".
