METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 15, 1979 GAME:

AP from Queens

This was an Easter Sunday DH. My friend and I took the bus and walked over the Roosevelt Ave. Bridge as usual. In the upper deck a Phillies fan named Howie started talking to us. And he never stopped talking for 2 games. He was nuts but knew a lot about the Philly sports scene. He did a great Harry Kalas imitation. He really entertained us. We always looked for him again but never met up "Howie Phillie" again.

This was "Pete Rose Day" They gave out pictures of his record breaking hitting streak swing from the prior year at Shea.

This time the disgraced Rose was taunted by the Shea crowd. Most of the pictures got torn up and scattered on the field. There were loud chants of "Pete Rose Sucks"!!.

Easter Sunday. Cold drizzle through the whole doubleheader - Phillies in control the whole day. My brother and a friend of ours sat in the upper deck freezing until the last inning - naturally we missed 3 run homers by Schmidt and Mazzilli...also missed Easter Sunday dinner with the family, who forgave me. My friend I believe caught whoopass bronchitis or pneumonia and missed the next week of school - I think he also forgave me...don't know what happened to the Rose photos - but honoring an opposing player (a mere 6 years after he fisted Bud in the playoffs) while his team is sweeping a doubleheader, well, that just typified the late 70s era

My Dad, sister and I attended the double header. After the miserable conditions, Dad and I were ready to leave, but my sister insisted we stay until they announced the winner of the 60-pound Fanny Farmer chocolate bunny rabbit. Dad and I were not happy, but we stayed. Lo and behold my sister won that rabbit! Mom was watching the game and couldn't believe when she heard my sister's name called. Mom partitioned off that rabbit for my entire freshman year of baseball! Needless to say, we didn't stick around for the second game. We had to get the bunny home.

Example One
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.
