Steelers To Have New Turf To Play On By Monday

Hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends and has the day off to relax.

On to the Steelers...The organization plans to put down a new grass playing field in time for Monday Night Football against the Dolphins. It will have to be a quick job with no hiccups though, because four high-school championship games, plus the South Florida vs. Pitt game are all scheduled at Heinz over the weekend.

The Steelers plan to cover the entire field with new sod, placing it over the DD GrasMaster that was installed four years ago. Although the regular playing surface will likely remain in place in future seasons, the sod will should make a difference for the remainder of the 2007 season.
