You can buy a ten pound bag of regular old grass seed for, oh, $12-15 or so. Or, you can buy a ten pound bag of regular old grass seed with a Boston Red Sox logo on it for $22:
The Scotts Co. yesterday unveiled a grass-seed product that “contains actual varieties” used for the lush lawn at 4 Yawkey Way.
The $22 bags of baseball blend bear the Red Sox logo and the
signature of David Mellor, the team’s director of grounds, who helped
Scotts create the Kentucky bluegrass seed mix and companion lawn
The David Mellor? Well, why didn’t you say so . . .
For those curious, Wrigley Field blend will be a little later in arriving to store shelves because they’re having trouble getting the blend of pebbles, crabgrass, divots and old pipes just right.
