I can't believe that anyone else has commented on this game! This was the infamous 9th Inning Seat Cushion Toss when Kingman hit a home run and the Mets were down 5-1 at the time and all of a sudden promotional seat cushions were flung from all sections of Shea and onto the field. I remember watching this on Ch. 9 and to this day, I still am amazed of what happened on that Saturday night.

I was at this game! I just got my driver's license and went to the game with my brother and two kids from our neighborhood. My brother is an Astros fan. The game was a typical 1982 Mets game, no pitching and no offense. People are banging their seat cushions hoping Dave Kingman is going to crank one out of the park. Sure enough in the 9th he hits one into the Houston bullpen and seat cushions go flying everywhere, all over the field. I remeber the Astros 1st baseman didn't even move while the cushions landed all around him.

I was also at this game with my friend Murray and also our H.S. Algebra teacher, Mr. Finch. And I do definitely remember everyone tossing the seat cushions onto the field. I held onto mine though, definitely did not want to let go of that freebie. LOL

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.
