My first Mets game. I was 8 years old. Jim Hickman hit for the cycle, Stan Musial pinch hit for the Cardinals and the Mets actually won! My one and only look at the Polo Grounds.

November 25, 2007
Oh, those were the days when the Mets were pitiful, the lovable, Amazin' Mets. I was 13, and went this day with a summer school group from Westchester. It was the last year in the Polo Grounds; we sat in the left field stands, in special seats set aside for groups. As usual, the stands were empty. Whenever I went myself I sat in the center field bleachers for 75 cents. That was the place to sit.

I remember almost nothing about the game, except the fact that Jim Hickman hit for the cycle. In those days, we remembered every Mets feat. So here was Hickman, a guy we loved, couldn't hit a lick, but we didn't care. And he hit for the cycle.

The bus ride home must have been great. And yes, the Mets even won the game. A Miracle!

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.
