METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 18, 1979 GAME:

So my wife is this huge Dave Kingman fan with the worst luck/timing. We went to a Sunday doubleheader against the Cubs in July; Kingman hit 5 home runs on Friday and Saturday, then did nothing Sunday in the rain and cold, and one game was rained out. This is the makeup twi-nighter. The first game starts at 5pm, so my wife leaves straight from her job and gets there in the bottom of the third inning, right after Kingman knocked in 2 Cubs. He does nothing the rest of the game, neither do the Mets; they lose 2-0. Second game is 1-1 after 9 innings, with Kingman 0-4. It's late, so we leave to go home. On the radio on the way home, of course we hear that Kingman singles in a run in the 11th, and the Cubs win 2-1. At this point we're waiting for Kingman to call us and tell us to stay home when he plays!

This was the beginning of the Mets worst homestand ever as they went 0-9 hosting the Cubs, Expos, and Cards.

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.

Thank you!
