  1. Qualifying Day at the Rogers Cup, 2009 Part I

    I went to the Rogers Cup qualifying with my family this past Saturday. It was fairly warm and mostly sunny--in fact, this is quite possibly the first nice (that is, not rainy and/or cool) weekend in Toronto this summer. Here’s a not too brief rundown of who/what we saw.
