Thru This Game


September 8, 2006
I was around nine years old and I believe we were driving home from a family trip to Hershey PA. I recall my father trying to get the game in as we moved homeward towards NJ. I remember being somewhat interested as the Mets were playing well in it and they got something started in a inning when I believe it was either Station Identification or Bob Murphy mentioning the death of Elvis Presley. All I remember is my mother frantically changing the channel looking for news while sobbing. I had just started being a Met fan "what a time aye?" and wanted to hear the Mets rally. And protested in the back seat demanding my mother put the Mets back on. My mother with satan in her eyes looked back and me and told me to SHUT UP about the STUPID METS!!.

It was the only time I can ever remember her yelling at me like that which is why this sticks out so much. I mean who the hell was Elvis to me at the time? Certainly no Lee Mazzilli!!

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!
