One of my first Met games. I was 12. My dad decided to drive to the game (from NJ). We got lost somehow in Brooklyn, then somehow wound up in the Bronx and finally got to Shea in the 4th inning just in time to see Jim McAndrew give up 2 runs to the Reds. It was Camera Day at Shea and I bought my "Insta-matic" with lots of extra film but since we arrived late, Camera Day festivities were finished so I used up all the film on pictures of the game. Since we were sitting way up in the General Admission seats (nose-bleed country!, the players looked about the size of ants. It was shameful to hear Tug getting booed for giving up the winning run to the Reds but it was a beautiful cool, breezy sunny day at a young Shea Stadium in the greatest city in the world so all was not lost. We got home without a problem!

My first major league game - I was 10. We sat in the Press Box. We took Camera Day photos, but for some reason they weren't developed for a over a decade. Somehow they actually came out. It was interesting looking back at what Shea looked like back then.

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.
