Legg Mason: Mr. Roddick Goes to the White House

Speaking of tickets. For grins, I stopped by the Lacoste store on M St. to check out how the Roddick ticket give-away was going. There was a healthy and well organized line, with a few people also walking out with shopping bags to boot. Well done all around.

Legg Mason, Final Thoughts

My week with the boys of the ATP comes to a close now. It’s been a great fun and we got to see a ton of amazing matches.

If I do this again, I could be convinced to tote my laptop, but only if properly goaded.
