Whew. After 9 weeks of scuffling I think I may have finally stabilized. Both college and pro football have given me a harder time this year than ever before and maybe that makes sense with both sports being so chaotic this year. That said, I think I’m finally getting comfortable. I kicked butt in the NFL last week (10-3) and was solid in CFB (11-8)…here’s to another good week! Winner right out of the gate!
Honestly, I don’t know if I’m finally stabilizing or not. I think I may be, but just when I’ve thought that in the past I’ve had a terrible week. I’ll say this: I’m due for a big week because I really haven’t had one yet. Whew. No loss on Thursday Night Football. That’s a relief…even though Seattle didn’t look all that good. The Bears should win this one – GB looks helpless on offense with Hundley – but I want the points. Feels like a close, low-scoring game.
So, I’ve leveled off a bit the last couple of weeks. Nothing spectacular and nothing terrible. If I’m going to have this look good by the end of the season I’m gonna need to do some work! Here’s to hoping that happens this week:Well that’s not a good start to the week. Didn’t see the Bills falling apart like that. I don’t love the hook but Baltimore is so bad offensively I just can’t pick them on the road here. This game actually scares me a bit.
@birdsonabatshow To be fair - the HOF chose the BBWAA it was not the other way around. Any importance given to writers here is b/c of the HOF. HOF players, like Morgan, didn’t have an issue with writers when they were chosen.
All Passan is doing is removing himself. That does merit explanation.
@chrabe Brasky took his family to Sea World. They were watching Shamu the whale when Brasky got splashed. So Brasky yells, ‘I’m Bill Brasky & no one gets me wet!’ So he climbs into the tank, grabs Shamu, & throws the whale into the audience, splashes him and yells, ‘How do you like it?’
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".
