Opening day. Skipped JHS classes to go see opening day. Cold day, not much of a crowd and definitely not much hope in the air; we always knew the Mets would be in the chase for the first couple days of the season at best, so we needed to feel excitement before reality set in.

Snuck down to the fourth row on the Mets side between home and dugout. Watched in horror as the next "great" prospect, Kelvin Chapman missed the suicide squeeze and Bruce Bosclair, with his eye shade under his eyes running down the 3rd base line caught like a deer in the headlights. He was quickly tagged out and on we drudged on until the 14th and lost.

Ah yes, typical Mets at the time, but for a few seconds we had hope. No less, caught a cold walking back to Main Street to catch the buses back home. It was cold!

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!
