awesome: capable of inspiring awe.
awe: respect mixed with fear.

You fear and respect the Bosox infield grass?

You fear and respect the Bosox infield grass? Man, I'm glad I didn't get to see the game. I don't want to develop a phobia of grass. :smile:

Its just the first step toward more on-field ads.Someday soon(if baseball survives)you will see a beer or pepsi can etched in the grass.The uniforms are not far behind,i noticed a catcher with a huge nike swoosh on his chest protector.The unis will prob look like the ones nascar guys wear someday.

And that fly ball is brought in by Kenny Lofton, powered by White Sox Interactive! Totally Biased for all your Sox needs!

Lame:

1)Disabled in one or more limbs, especially the leg or foot
2)Marked by pain or rigidness
3)Weak and ineffectual

Since the grass wasn't screaming in pain and appeared to bear weight well, though still remaining flexible, I can only assume you meant ineffectual. However it did accomplish it's intended purpose - create an image of the Red Sox logo. Which you clearly recognized otherwise your statement makes no sense...

:D:

Anyone know how they do that? Is it different grass seed? Paint?

Why's that Matt? Because awesome used to be a good word with a very specific meaning, and now through its continued, cliched use as a word meaning nothing more than "good" or "cool" we have been left without a word to describe what awesome used to mean?

By the way, they already have (and may well be using) the technology to computer generate images that appear on TV to be mowed into the grass, but if you were at the park they would not be there, much like a lot of the advertising signs you see behind home plate on TV are not really at the ballpark. They could put a different ad in the grass for every inning, and different ones for different markets if the feed is going to more than one city.

Yeah really. Cut the damn grass with the stripe patterns and play the game.
