I was going to college at Ohio University and gathered a group of friends to see my beloved Mets at Riverfront that night. We had good field box seats midway into right field. The locals laughed at me in my Mets jacket, but Mike Bruhert pitched really well and I had the last laugh. Unfortunately, I got lost driving the sleeping group of students back to OU in Athens. It took me forever, but is was worth the trouble. I was really tired in the early morning classes the next day.

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.

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!
