Obviously I must have a serious personality flaw.

Not only did I go to a September twi-night double header that was not even remotely meaningful, but stayed for both games in their entirety.

Not suprisingly, the crowd was small enough to personally know everyone on a first name basis.

I was amply rewarded for my efforts, however. Caught a foul ball (Houseman pitching to Rudy May (or was it the other way around?) sitting in the orange seats (lodge? loge?) behind home plate.

Great web site!

Actually, the games were quite meaningful to the Expos who with Andre Dawson, Tony Perez, and a young Gary Carter were in a close race with the Pirates for the NL East title. They swept the Mets in two straight doubleheaders but ultimately fell two games short of the Pirates. Two years later, they would clinch a play-off spot at Shea near the end of the 1981 strike- season.

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.
