Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun has made his first public comments to the press since admitting use of performance-enhancing drugs, saying he "made a mistake, a huge mistake" and had dinner with the man who handled his drug test, Dino Laurenzi, Jr.
Does Brewers Nation believe his words, trust his word, and are fans willing to forgive?

Ryan Braun finally speaks... he was clearly prepared and handled the questions well. Wonder how (cont) http://t.co/RNyFfAiXIB— Matthew (@nickknaack) November 27, 2013
Ryan Braun collecting food at Miller Park today. Anyone hand him some humble pie yet?— Jill (@111JBK) November 27, 2013
I am glad that Braun is sorry. However I doubt my son will get over being sorry about choosing #8 for his tournament team uniform.— Dan Krueger (@DannyKrueger1) November 27, 2013
Small quibble, wished Braun had done this independent of food drive.— William (@MiltownBucky) November 27, 2013
One positive thing from Ryan Braun's press conference: At least he cut his hair.— Kyle Cousineau (@KCousineau09) November 27, 2013
No matter how much Braun apologizes and does charity work, I will never cheer for him again.— Nick Schueller (@OconSchueller) November 27, 2013
Ryan Braun was apparently vague about the truth but crafted a 3 act play in Maryvale about his lie regarding PED use.— The Joe T (@Joey_D_T) November 27, 2013
You're never going to get the "specifics" from Ryan Braun. You'll be able to read about them in Braun's book in 15 years.— Kevin Treichel (@KevinTreichel) November 27, 2013
Fans even reacted to Braun being engaged and getting ready for a wedding:
Ryan Braun is engaged?? What a rough start to my day. #heartbroken— Britt (@BrittBaars) November 27, 2013
So Braun answered a bunch of questions by basically saying he wouldn't go into anything? Do I have that right or no?— Ol' Bag of Donuts (@olbagofdonuts) November 27, 2013
