Take another look at this Mets line-up as it is a classic one. It had one foot planted in futility, while the other was pointed towards fame. All these fellows remain vital in my collective Mets Heart!

As a 20-year-old, I was able to persuade my boss to take the office for an outing to Shea to see a struggling team. Despite his worries on the venture, he was not disappointed.

16 of us piled into 2 cars and a rented van and made the 50 mile trek to that hallowed ground at Flushing Meadows.

Stuck in traffic on the Van Wyck, many vehicles were flashing Met paraphernalia to each other while also passing brewskies back and forth to (mostly) non-driving fans.

They were dangerous days but festive.

The Stadium was electric as Pat Zach threw an excellent game and the offense exploded in run scoring spurts. A rarity for that team.

A splendid time was had by all that night and it stays as a reminder that even during lean times, hope is always just over the horizon.

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!
