Fan 5/31/64 - 8/11/94
March 28, 2005
The Vietnam war was still going on and I was a freshman at college. Students were still holding protests, but they were mostly half-hearted as the draft lottery was instituted (I was #182) and schools administrators were acquiescing to most student demands. (Kent State was a couple of years earlier.) The annual spring call for a strike from classes and rally in the quad went out. The first part sounded like a capital idea, the second, well, we could do better things, like head to the bar, or in my case, hit the subways for the day Mets game.

I had to go alone (sports weren't the biggest thing in '72), but what a great day. I see a Seaver shutout and get back in time for another great dorm weekend. I remember the game, but not the weekend. (Don't remember many details of those.) The immoral war ended. I graduated. Seaver got traded. Things end. memories endure.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
