I was at Shea and it was one of those brief moments where we were actually playing well and were competitive. I was 17 years old and had brought a friend of mine who was a huge Yankees fan. I can still see it in my mind's eye from the right field stands when Ron Hodges hit a game winning single past the 2nd baseman in the bottom of the 12th after the Pirates had gone ahead in the top of the inning.

I felt so proud that my team wasn't a joke. It was an awesome moment. I remember my friend saying after the game winning hit, "There's not enough room in NY for two good teams." Thanks Ron Hodges, wherever you are.

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!
