According to an anonymous tip, several cast members of the reality TV show Real World Seattle were just spotted in Cal Anderson Park, preparing to replace the astroturf on the Bobby Morris Playfield that runs along Pine St. and 11th Ave. The existing turf had been taken up for routine maintenance and improvements, but no one expected the kids from Real World to get tasked with the job of replacing it. "We recognize that we're new to the Capitol Hill community," said Kersteene, 22, a cast member who studies molecular engineering and enjoys extreme sports when she's not shooting the show. "We just wanted to give a little something back. Actually we were told we had to do it, but once that was made clear we also wanted to. We also want to be bartenders and creatives and stuff, but If this job isn't done by 5pm today, one of us has to go home."

Good luck and thanks to the Real World Seattle team for getting involved. If you care to go out and lend a hand or just cheer them on (and possibly get a free bottle of the newly relaunched Crystal Pepsi, a proud Real World sponsor), just make sure and stop by the production HQ in the Ballou Wright Building on 12th between Pike and Pine to sign a release form beforehand.
