This was my first Met game. I was 8. It was the banner day doubleheader. I with everyone else who brought a banner walked the warning track around the field between games. I remember passing in front of the Mets dugout and seeing Gil Hodges and Ron Swoboda. A huge thrill for me! Too bad we lost both games. Poor Jim McAndrew. That guy pitched his heart out always and never could have a winning record.

Sunday, August 2, 1970 was the date of my first Met games at Shea Stadium. It was a Sunny Banner Day doubleheader against the San Diego Padres. The Mets lost both games. I remember Ron Taylor pitching in both games. My father and I sat in the Mezzanine section right over the Mets bullpen. Between games I remember a drunk Hispanic man yelling down to Jerry Grote for an autograph. Jerry Grote told him "&*$@ you." The man later broke a Mets replica batting helmet that he had purchased for his son by banging it on the seats. I remember the smell of cheap cigar smoke, and my ears ringing for days after the 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.
