Hey, Aggie fans, how’d you like to score some of the same grass that’s been used by Johnny Manziel? Now you can. Texas A&M is selling live grass from the playing surface at Kyle Field.
What’d you think we were talking about?
For $400 you buy a 450 square-foot pallet of live sod. The donor grass will be harvested after the Aggies’ home finale against Mississippi State. A new field — which is currently being grown elsewhere — will be installed in A&M’s stadium before next season.
Those looking for a smaller supply of grass and kick in $20 for a single square.
The Houston Chronicle reports that the Kyle Field grass is a mixture of tifway bermuda and rye grass. Too bad. We hear a mix of Kentucky bluegrass, featherbed bent and Northern California Sensimilla is really the way to go.
