Grass


Oh, I'm on grass alright--thick stands of big and little bluestem, gama grass, Indian grass, breaking through the grass and forbs to tally up the field sparrows, yellow breasted chats, indigo buntings, and prairie warblers. The blue grey gnatcatchers hang out on the edges.

While I'm in the woodlands, those with access to ESPN2 can see if Maria has actually been playing tennis during her recovery period. Roddick is still in (damn it), Nadal, Gasquet and Monfils aren't even participating in Wimbledon. The baseline grass is already burned out while grass at the net is pristine.
