Hey, it was only a coin toss. That little pregame ceremony that precedes every football game. Nothing to get stressed about. But, hey, this was the Angelus League. Greg Willig, St. Paul High School's quarterback, had only one thought at that moment in 1987: heads or tails. He was being introduced to the Bishop Amat captains when . . . WHAM-O .

SuperSod is a new product that looks a lot like the padding put under carpets. It is a 1/4-inch-thick mat of jute and hemp, and inside is a layer of grass seed. To plant a lawn, you prepare and level the soil, roll out the mats, lightly cover them with some kind of mulch or amendment (such as Gromulch), and then water frequently to keep the mats and seed wet. In a couple of weeks, the seed germinates and you have a lawn. In time, the mat disintegrates. Because everything the seed needs is contained in the mat, you can even grow this sod on top of concrete, and SuperSod, in fact, sells a "repair kit" for lawns--little squares of seed and matting that you sprout on the patio or driveway and then use for patching bare spots in existing lawns.
