METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 20, 1969 GAME:

BIGSTRO
March 18, 2003
This night marked the first time I ever witnessed our heroes emerge victorious at the big Shea. McAndrew pitched more like Christy Mathewson on this early August Eve as he proceeded to make Mays and Stretch Mcovey look more like Abbott and Costello. Agee and Jones dialed eight on that shameless Disciple of saliva Gaylord Perry and I made a solemn promise to BIGSTRO Sr. to never name any boy of mine Gaylord . All in all it was another magical summer evening in a summer that was abundant with magical summer evenings and an indescribeable thrill for a curly haired Sicilian kid from Greenwich Village.

One correction to Bigstro's earlier post on this game: the only Mets homer this night was by Art Shamsky, a three-run shot in the bottom of the fifth. Art also drove in the first Mets run with a first inning double.

Tommie Agee did single to drive in a run for the Mets.

Example One
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!
