Is this a weed?

Hi Everyone- New here and looking for some help.

I am trying to determine if the below is a weed or not. I have a few patches of this on my otherwise nice green lawn and I am trying to see if I should be concerned or ignore it. It seems to be a thicker bladed grass that clumps.
Please see image below.

In the time it took you to go get your camera, walk into the yard, take the picture, walk inside, load it on your PC, fire up lawnsite, start a new thread, download the picture

you could have bent over and pulled it

Thanks Bill, but I have a camera on my phone in which I emailed and posted it from... amazing how technology works huh!

Took me no time at all.

Now if it was just that one in my yard you may be correct, but I have some random patches throughout my yard. Seems worth the effort to find out about it to me.

Thanks DGW, but is it a weed or something I should try and eliminate?

It looks like a species of turf grass but you would have to look at the ligule, auricle, and vernation to tell what species it is. Is the leaf blade shinny on the bottom compared to the top?

I was just having fun with you

what is going on in your yard happens all of the time usually by some knucklehead at home depot, they sell them fescue seed for a KBG yard
