My first Mets' game! My first game ever was in 1969, where I saw the Yankees at the Stadium play the Royals. Yanks won, 3-2. I remember seeing Joe Pepitone in the parking lot with his shirt unbuttoned down to his fly, and his hairy chest. Meanwhile he had a girl on each arm. Someone asked him for an autograph, and he said he'd be back in two minutes. He of course never came back.

But I digress. I became a Met fan instead of a Yankee fan because I was under the impression that the National League was superior to the American League. They still call it the junior curcuit, right? Anyway, Seaver went all the way in this one. And Joe Foy and Cleon Jones hit back-to-back home runs. What a great way to begin my fandom!

Joe Foy and Cleon Jones both homered in this game but Foy's was a two-run shot with two outs in the bottom of the second, and Jones hit his leading off the bottom of the fourth.

Seaver pitched a complete game, giving up six hits, including a Bobby Bonds homer, and four walks. He struck out six, including ringing up Willie Mays three times.

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.
