METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 15, 1973 GAME:

This was the first game that I ever went to. I was ten years old and I believe it was a Banner Day Doubleheader. We drove down from Newburgh, NY in our 1972 Chevy Townsman station wagon. It was my Dad and my brother Steve that went and we sat in the Loge section above third base. I remember walking into the stadium from the concourse and being amazed how green the grass was. The first time we saw Jerry Grote and Wayne Garrett we went crazy because up til then they had just been on TV for us. We had a great time and saw Ferguson Jenkins in the first game which the Mets won and we stayed for about 3 innings of the second game and my brother and I have been Mets fans ever since and have been at even more memorable games in the 80's and 00's, but nothing like your first.

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!
