Going to this game (my only Mets game in '81 due to the strike) was the only highlight of a dreadful summer for me because I had to go to summer school and the fact that my relatives NO longer had their house due to a bad fire that happened before Christmas 1980 which meant NO backyard bbq or swimming pool. (They decided NOT to rebuild and they moved into smaller places.) Although I have ticket stubs from every Mets game I have attended from the late 70's on, I don't have the stub from this game. A cloudy afternoon affair which only 17,488 attended and where future Mets skipper Art Howe played 3B for the Astros. The Mets won 3-2.

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!
