This was Banner Day at Shea! My friends and I made a banner saying how great Dave Kingman was (I was nine and naive). The first game went into extra innings and we had to wait for what felt like eternity to get on the field. As we were parading, some one asked us for our number. I thought we were going to win a prize. The man took our number, handed it to another man, who handed it to someone else who subsequently threw it in the trash with the rest of the losers. We then walked through the Mets bullpen (saw Bob Apodaca up close) and through the tunnel connecting the dugout and the bullpen, Jerry Grote ran past me, prompting me to yell "Hey Jerry!" raising my hand for a High Five (if that's what they called it then). With eyes fixed straight ahead, he kept running, leaving my high five suspended in mid air. Mets were swept in the double header, but that didn't matter. I was on the field.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
