I'm more serious than kidding this time. Mingionne should have been long gone.

This is absolutely unacceptable.

I guess our baseball team sucks now too.

Is it football season yet?

Any lawn/turf pro's on here? Got a weeds question.

Let me preface this by saying I am as far from having a green thumb as possible.

We moved into a new construction house last September.  Bermudagrass sod had been laid (rather poorly, I may add) around the end of August or beginning of September.

I obviously didn't have much spread/growth of the grass due to timing, and only had to cut it a couple of times before it started to go dormant.  Once we got into the depth of winter and the rains started to come, I've had an explosion of weeds.... mainly henbit, corn speedwell, a little bit of bluegrass here and there..... the normal winter weeds.

However, I've got some grassy weeds that are taking over, especially in the bare spots that didn't get filled between my sod squares.  I've researched and researched, but can't seem to nail down exactly what type of grass it is so I can attack it.  The closest things I can try to nail it down to are barnyardgrass, crabgrass or perennial ryegrass.  However, barnyard and crabgrass are summer weeds, but you can never tell here in the south when it goes from 80 to 30 in a day.

I'll post a picture when I get home, but for the meantime, I'll explain it.

-Grows in tight clumps, with purple-ish color at the base of the stems.  It seems to grow from one singular spot and doesn't spread underground.  The roots are tightly wound.
-The leaves are very long grass-type leaves and I can't seem to see any prevalent seedheads, yet.
-Seem to sprout up extremely fast after a rain.
-Ortho Weed B Gon Max seemed to take care of all the henbit and broadleef weeds, but didn't hardly put a dent on this grass.

Help me out, ye gardeners!  I'll pull up a sprout and post a picture when I get home.
