Is this a weed or just different type of grass?

I'm in CT, 06611, and generally have a mix of bluegrass, ryegrass and fescue (I believe). Not sure if this is a weed or some other kind of grass. Also, it's only popping up in some bad/patchy areas.

Thanks for your thoughts.

If the stem is noticably triangular shaped, it's a type of sedge.

Thanks. I'll look into that. Also here's a slightly bigger photo:

So this stuff is now popping up like crazy (was just a little bit when I posted the other day). Below are some more detailed pics. Sedge, quack grass, something else? Thanks again!

Hmm. Guess my Lesco Dimension didn't do the trick

Any chance it could be stiltgrass rather than quack or crab?

I guess I should just pull some and bring it to local garden center...

Could it be Nutsedge?

Here's a pic of mine:
