This was supposed to be a double header but it rained, afterwards we went to cousin Joe's in queens and saw Paul.

Oh yeah, Richie Hebner hit a homer run

During the summer of 79 I saw Kobel pitch 5 times. This was one of the good ones. We drove in a car that day that had no floor in the back seats so water was spitting up from the Whitestone Expressway onto the back seat.

I still have the ticket stub from this DH which was only one game due to the rainout of game 2. My mother had a friend who had season tickets to the Mets and I got to go with my older brother. I sat in the Field Level, Box 46C, Seat 1; Right near the Cubs bench and when Dave Kingman came out of the dugout to get to the on-deck circle, he looked like Hulk Hogan if he was wearing a powder blue Cubs uniform with pinstripes which was their road wear back then. As a 12-year old, I went "OH MY GOD". Looking at the boxscore, I see that Bill Buckner had an UNEVENTFUL 0 for 3. That seat in 1979 cost $400 for the entire season, just wondering what that same seat costs in 2006?

My wife was the biggest Dave Kingman fan,and I liked him, too, so we got tickets to the Sunday doubleheader against the Cubs. Well, Friday we didn't go to the game, and Kingman hit 2 home runs. Saturday we didn't go to the game, and he hit 3 home runs! So here we are, in miserable weather, for a doubleheader. Well, Kingman went 0-3; the game was called after 7 innings and a long rain delay. Obviously the second game was rained out. We got tickets for the make-up twi-nighter, where my wife's bad-luck-Kingman timing continued.

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.
