Final home game of the season. Fan Depreciation Day. Cold, rain, drizzle.

The Mets held their "All-Star Relay Rallye" of two balls, one marked "A", the other "N," racing across the instant replay screen. If your scorecard matched the winning ball, you usually got a small souvenir. This time, they gave away a free souvenir to all fans, but we couldn't hear what it was. So Andrew sent me down, down, down, the stairs in the upper deck, to the refreshment stand, where they handed me...a free cup of ice cream.

Then back, up, up, up, to our seats under the overhang, in the rain, fog, cold, and drizzle. I handed him the ice cream. "Bon appetit," I said.

"Team is crazy," Andrew said, echoing Choo Choo Coleman.

That was the 1980 Mets.

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!
