First road game I ever saw the Mets play. My folks had helped me move into my freshman dorm at Penn and we had some free time, so we went over to the Vet. The only time I ever saw Nolan pitch in person and he lost. The Phils gave out Phillies rulers and book covers for back to school day and my sisters hung on to the rulers (which included Mike Schmidt's picture on it) for years.

I saw a bunch of Met games at the Vet over the next four years because they were always scheduled for a trip to Philly in April before the spring semester was over and in September after the fall semester had started. Of course, I most remember 1973. I went to a Phils-Pirates game that September to root against the Pirates.

Nolan Ryan walked five, hit a batter and gave up three hits in just two innings (plus three batters in the third) as the Mets got creamed by the Phils.

Don Hahn had a fifth inning inside-the-park homer for the Mets off Woody Fryman. It was Hahn's first career home run.

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.
