    Even if you were too stupid to see that it was fake, how do you not figure something is wrong after the first pass of the mower.

    The whole point of ponying up for the artificial grass called FieldTurf is that it requires very little maintenance. According to the company’smanual, there are just four simple maintenance tasks that FieldTurf requires, which can be recalled by using the acronym BARS: brushing, aerating, raking and sweeping. Note that the acronym is not MARS, with the first letter standing for “mowing.” Under no circumstances should FieldTurf, or any synthetic grass — which, hello, does not grow — be mowed.

    D’oh! There’s one field that will need some new sections. If the school contracted out for that landscaping job, then one can only imagine that the replacements will be purchased on that company’s dime.

    According to the Twitter user, Tom Fink, “the field is in maryland & they mowed a good chunk of it.” Presumably, there was nothing artificial about the anger that must have been directed at the crew that couldn’t tell it wasn’t on real grass.

    The landscapers insurance will cover it. If they have insurance, that is.

    I don't know whether to go with the Pollock joke, or the Mexican joke.

    I'll keep it classy and not go with either.

    Hey, shit happens

    Lawn care error kills most of Ohio college's grass
    FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — A university in northwest Ohio is being forced to replace almost all its grass after weedkiller was accidentally applied to lawns instead of fertilizer.
    University of Findlay spokeswoman Brianna Patterson says the chemical was applied to campus lawns during the last week of April and it will take several weeks to reseed and re-sod the affected areas................

    The university says grass was killed on as many as 54 of the campus' 72 acres.

    I've seen some astroturf that was pretty convincing. I could see taking a couple passes before I noticed. They even put brown fake pieces in there so it looks even more real.
