METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 7, 1979 GAME:

Mike D.
February 10, 2002
My first baseball game! I was seven years old.

It was supposed to be a double header, but the first game was rained out in the top of the 7th. I went with my Dad, my maternal grandfather and my uncle, who got the tickets to New York Telephone's box seat -- a great vantage point from which to watch Lee Mazzilli in the on-deck circle. It was my only glimpse of Shea before Fred and Nelson bathed the place in blue paint (and took down the panels); and a decent crowd to see a woeful team. (My father, a die-hard Yankee fan coming off two titles, took one for the team here).

My main memory of the game was watching my grandfather stand and cheer every time Dave Kingman got up to bat. It wasn't until years later I understood that it was just a form of protest as to what had gone on just three years prior...

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!
