This game was on Monday Night Baseball. I was just a kid so I never made past the 5th inning, and I had already given up. (rare for me in those days, I usually would "Never Say Die" until the last out. But I gave up and missed a great ending.

I was 9 years old and it was my second Mets game. The Mets were down by 6 by the middle of the game but inched up throughout the later innings. I can still see Tim Foli rounding third in the 9th inning on a throwing error to score the winning run. The crowd went crazy!

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.
