METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 19, 1976 GAME:

I was at this game. I was 11 years old at the time and was on a bus trip courtesy of Martz Trailways from Wilkes-Barre PA. Anyway, what I remember is it being a warm Sunday, and Dave Kingman launching 2HRS, both to leftfield and Skip Lockwood coming in and just blowing hitters away, something like 7K's in 3 innings! Ever see a short relief specialist do that now? Lockwood to me is one of the most underrated Met relievers of all time, certainly better than those two clowns Benitez or Franco or others too numerous to mention.

I remember this game very well. I was 13 and Willie Stargell was my favorite visiting player so me and my father went to see this game. The Mets were having a pretty good year and the Pirates always drew a good crowd, this was before the nightmare of 77. We had great seats behind home and it couldn't have been any better, Stargell homered and the Mets made a great comeback powered by my favorite Met at the time Dave Kingman's 2 bombs. As the previous fan posted, Lockwood was awesome that day too and it was a great win and a great day to be 13 and a Mets fan.

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.
