This was Fan Appreciation Day at Shea. All fans passing the turnstiles received a Mets tote bag. It was the first time my friends and I attended a game without adult supervision. We had a group of about twelve 11 and 12 year olds. We waited in a long line for our $1.30 GA tickets. They were stamped "Standing Room Only". Despite the disappointing season, Shea was packed. Nobody knew where the "Standing Room Only" area was so we wound up running around the ballpark and missing most of the game. At one point we were on the terrace above the 341 mark in RF and watched a young Nino Espinosa tune up the bullpen. A security guard directed us to seats in the last row of seats (row V) in the RF upper level. We finally sat in the top of the seventh just in time to see Bob Apodaca lose his no-hit bid! A wild day for a bunch of kids, we missed most of the game but I was just the first of endless treks to Shea for my for my buddies and me.

I still have my tote bag, and pics of the game. I was 9, sitting on the Mets side. There was a rain delay. Bob Apodaca was great that day.

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.
