What is this weed grass?

I've had these photos long enough and still am not sure what weed grass this is. It seems to have a yellow flower and I can't find a grass with such a flower. For a while I thought it might be some kind of crabgrass, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Thank you :-)
I know it's just a common weed but I haven't figured out which one.

I don't know what it is, but I don't think it's grass since it has flowers like that.

I feel like it reminds me of something, but I can't remember what. :|

As a possibility ...Tragopogon pratensis......Goats Beard?

Yeah, I was thinking not grass. The leaves that the flower is coming out of in the middle picture are broader than grass leaves.

Re: What is this weed grass?

yup, that flower bud is conspicuously not grass. I'm with jona, it's salsify/tragopogon.

It certainly looks like you are right, JONA878. These yellow flowers are confusing me more and more. The various wild lettuces and thistles are also mind numbing. I may post a couple of those before long. Thanks again. I'm sure you are all correct on this ID.
