This was supposed to be a 3-game opening series but because of the freak April blizzard that hit the Northeast and Midwest; it became a one-game series and the temperature that Holy Thursday Afternoon at the Vet was more fitting for Christmas Caroling than playing the Summer Game. The game was on Ch. 9 and I stayed home from school to watch the game. Because Mother Nature threw a curveball at us, we had to make up the games in late June henceforth the lost weekend when the Phillies swept a 5-game series from us and turned a promising season into a train wreck.

I remember watching this game before I went to a Rangers/Flyers playoff game at the Garden. I remember one of the ushers there was excited that the Mets won.

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!
