Citrus Bowl turf III

The issue that won't die. The East-West Shrine game is scheduled to be played at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando January 23rd but concerns about the turf will not die. The Orlando Sentinel had a piece today about what is being done.
Money quote:

Johnson met with the city's turf consultant Monday and told suppliers to find enough turf to re-sod again before the East-West Shrine Game. The city "won't rest" until the field is up to Shrine Game standards, he said.

There's heavy demand from golf courses for Celebration Bermuda grass this time of year. The city hopes to find enough — cut a half-inch thicker than what is now in place — to re-sod from goal line to goal line. If there's not enough available, the city is likely to supplement it with another variety of Bermuda.

It's nice that they're "not resting" until it's fixed, but I'll believe it when I see it. On January 23.

Until next time.
