METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 3, 1976 GAME:

This game was memorable to me because it was the only time I got to see Tom Seaver pitch as a Met at Shea. I became a fan in 1975 and Seaver to this day has always been my favorite Met. Also this day was Met Medallion Day (the next day the Mets had a huge Bicentenial Banner Day Doubleheader against the Cubs that I was at some neighbor's BBQ and I got into a fight with my brother playing running the bases) I remember the Mets winning on a single by Harrelson in the 10th (but perhaps I am wrong since the box score does not list an rbi for Harrelson but lists only two of the Mets 3 runs as rbi's) Our whole family would go to the game and sit in the mezzanine (don't recall where). My brother who sadly grew up to be a Yankee fan tells people, "My father abused me as a child" He took me to Shea.

I was at this game; it was the first time I saw a game from the field seats. It was an awesome experience. I still have the Mets medallion I got from this game.

Actually, Jimmy, Bud Harrelson did win this game for the Mets, but not with a single. In the bottom of the tenth inning, Bud led off with a TRIPLE to right. It was a long fly ball that went over the outfielder's head, landing in front of the Mets' bullpen. The ball must have gone at least 350 feet in the air - a rare display of power from Buddy. He later scored the winning run, I believe on a bad pickoff throw to first.

This was the first Mets game I ever went to and the only one my father took me to before he died.

I remember Tom Seaver pitching and the Mets Medallion that I still have.

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.
