Hey, the locals are doing a nice job of aggregating! "@mylittlebloggie: Did another out of town sports reporter break the Harvin trade?"-- David Brauer (@dbrauer) March 11, 2013
@murphppress OK, since I was a jerk first, I'll accept the shot tho it is perilously close to "you never played the game."-- David Brauer (@dbrauer) March 11, 2013

@davecampbellap look, I gave and I'll take, but I'm not saying that.-- David Brauer (@dbrauer) March 11, 2013
Can't we all just get along?
