My first game. What an experience! 9 yrs old, in the upper deck, section 1, and the untold vastness of the place! The booming sound of the PA. The greenest green, the bluest blue, and those chipped wooden seats. I think the scorecard was 75cents and the genl admission was 1.35! I got a Tug McGraw pin and wore it the rest of the summer. I figured I was good luck for the Mets, cause they won that night. I wonder if the thrill is the same for kids today?

Interesting trivia note about this game: This was the night of the real-life bank robbery in Flatbush that inspired the movie "Dog Day Afternoon." The two robbers and their hostages passed their time inside the bank listening to the Mets game on the radio. The Mets did better than the robbers did.

Was staying with my grandmother in The Bronx and she took me to this game. She really wasn't much of a baseball fan. I was 8 years old and already a big Mets fan. Living in The Bronx she would always say "I was never into baseball especially The Yankees .But after 2 brothers and a husband it took my grandson Stuart to turn me into a Mets fan." I'll never forger that night, Grandma. Let's Go Mets!!!

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.
