What happened last week while we were at South Beach Miami? We’ll leave out the details of our living quarters for the week — that’s a long tale for another day — but in case you missed some of our posts last week we’ve linked them up below with short summaries. Now you’ll never be short on pictures, fair coverage, and commentary. You also won’t be short of AFC’s Will Brand, who took the pervert watch this year.
