UF Practice Field

This picture was taken on the artificial football practice field on the University of Florida campus.

Okay, I know that artificial athletic fields have a place. Particularly in situations where available land is limited and annual use exceeds a natural fields’ ability to recover from damage. However, seeing a story like his one makes me admire the sales tactics of whoever marketed this product to the community of Roxbury. They have agreed to take out loans that will require 15 years to payback on a field that under ideal conditions may last around 10 years before needing to be replaced.
