I remember this game well. I had just moved to San Francisco from New York three weeks before. When "my team," the Mets, came into town, I went out to Candlestick Park for my first visit. I walked up to the ticket window an hour before the first pitch and bought a box seat about 10 rows behind the Giants' dugout. I was amazed that it was possible to buy such a good seat on game day. It wasn't too far into the game that I realized why I had been so lucky to land such a great seat. There were only about 3,000 people at Candlestick that day! And as the game progressed, it was all Mets....both on the field and in the stands. Of the 3,000 people at the game, at least 2,000 of them were Mets' fans, mostly transplanted New Yorkers like myself. During the 7th inning stretch, I said this is absurd, and I became a Giants fan, right then and there. And I've been a Giants'fan ever since --- it will be 30 years next April!

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!
