This was my first met game attanded and I've been hooked on them ever since, good or bad. I was 10 years old and my older brother suprised me that Sunday morning by telling that he was taking me to the game. I vividly remember a lot this game. It was a scheduled doubleheader against the Colt 45's. Galen Cisco started and never got out of the first inning! The Colt 45's scored 7 runs in the first of the first game. The first Colts batter hit a ground ball to 2nd base and it went right through Larry Burright's legs! A rookie, Rusty Staub was batting 3rd for Colt 45's and was hit right in the head by Cisco and left the game I beleive. Anyway, in the bottom of the 8th, Frank Thomas hit a 2 run home run off the upper deck left field facade of the Polo Grounds to make it 8-3 and then the game was called due to rain and they never played the 2nd game. I also remember that this was the day I found out my older brother (17) was smoking! What a day!

This was my first Mets game too. I don't remember much but I do remember it was raining and that someone was hit in the head. The game seemed to be held up for quite a while. I didn't know it was Rusty Staub!

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.
