So long ago, so I have only these lasting impressions - getting beaned in the stands as Gary Kolb skidded a batting practice liner across the top of my skull (a fan got the ball, gave it to me with the comment "here you go, you deserve this one", being so close to the field I could actually hear Ed Kranepool say s#%t as a practice throw got past him at 1B (this was pre-Ball Four when we didn't know major leaguers said that stuff), and the Pirates daring to go against Tom Seaver with a pitcher with the face of a 12-year old. Oh, and incidentally Doc Ellis bested Seaver 3-0.

Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
