METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 6, 1971 GAME:

Oscar Gabriel
August 18, 2011
When I was a kid, my parents thought I still too young to go to a game by myself and I had two tickets to see this one. I just figured out the date was 7/6/71 because I also remember that it was the day Louis Armstrong died.

Anyway, my folks made my older sister take me to Shea, and she wasn't crazy about the idea. We rode the subway from the Bronx to Shea and our seats were high in the upper deck and my sister was frightened about the ridiculously high trek up the steps. Jerry Koosman started and lasted one inning, leaving the game with what was announced as soreness in his rib cage. My sister thought it was funny and joked the rest of the game that Mrs. Koosman must have whacked him in the ribs because she was mad at him. I was so mad at her because she was making fun of one of my favorite Mets, but because she was so afraid of being up so high, I let her talk me into leaving the game early. After that, my younger brother and were allowed to go to games by ourselves.

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!
