Regarding the Green Stuff (not that "green stuff", but the stuff on which a football fan's dreams are played out)

-- Jersey poet Walt Whitman (1819-1892), from Leaves of Grass

"We are living things, like trees and grass," he said looking out at the bright-green football field, and adding, "I don't know if this grass is true grass."

--Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama, mystified by the
Rutgers Stadium FieldTurf® when he spoke in front of
36,000 people at R House on September 25, 2005
