My first game ever! My best friend's communion and his father brought us to the game. Great seats, not far back from the Mets dugout. A beautiful day. A young kid, I was in awe of being at the ballpark. Two distinctive memories, naturally the Mets lost, a precursor to being a Met fan. The fondest memory: Watching Ed Kranepool's Home Run sail over the bullpen wall, standing on my seat to watch it go and go and go ! I was given money from my father for a souvenir; I got a Mets cap. I kept that hat for forever. I wish I still had it. I regret that I do not have the stub from that day.

I remember being mesmerized by the Padres uniforms and asking my father why we couldn't get Ed Kranepool's home run ball. I was fixated with that ball until a stadium employee lazily walked over and picked up what could have been a wonderful souvenir for this seven year old boy.

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.
