I'm not sorry about the pun in the headline. Anyway, Minnesota United forward Christian Ramirez had quite the baby announcement back in this past Saturday's 3-2 comeback victory at the Montreal Impact. In his first start after from his July 29 hamstring injury, the striker scored the tying goal and celebrated by putting a ball under his shirt, which is the universal goal dedication for a baby. Ramirez said he had been planning that goal celebration for a while.
Chris Wright is about 4,000 miles from his native England, but joining Minnesota United is still a bit of a homecoming. “This is a legacy play,” the soccer club’s new chief executive officer said Monday. “I’m returning to my roots, the game that I was born into, the game that I played, the game that I coached, the game that I came to the United States to manage.”United officially announced Wright as the club’s first CEO on Monday at a news conference at the team’s Golden Valley offices.
Michael Boxall set a timer when he left his hotel in the Solomon Islands after national team duty with New Zealand on Monday. A mere 46 hours later, he was back with Minnesota United last Thursday. Boxall played the full 90 minutes of Saturday's 1-1 draw with the Philadelphia Union, but hopefully he hasn't unpacked his bags yet.
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".
