Chad talks about how they move into an NFL stadium and replace the entire playing surface days before a big game. Interesting conversation for any turf grower.
  5. Good post, Joe. I, too, am the product of forced change, albeit long ago. How we deal with it — whether to bounce or go splat — is key. Congratulations on having bounced! Introspection and reassessment are always good and worthy processes, particularly at year-end and most especially of a year like this one. I'll echo your "good riddance", and add an "AMF" of my own!
