Fan 5/64 - 8/94
March 15, 2005
It was my wife's "rookie" year (see comments under 5/25/84). By this time of year, we were starting to believe that maybe they could actually win the division. Certainly, there were parallels to '69. So, we decided to spend our vacation seeing some road games and followed the team to Pittsburgh and Chicago.

By the time we got to Wrigley, we were real close. The ghost of Al Weis cropped up everywhere. Cub fans, too, were stoked and the place was partially rocking. I say partially because half the people there were true Cubs fans, wearing Mets-Busters T-shirts and other anti-Mets apparel. The other half were yuppies playing hookey from work and were more interested in getting the beer vendors' attention that what was going on in the field.

In any event, Gooden started and got his clock cleaned. The Mets got swept in 4 and it more or less showed that the team was not ready for prime time yet. By the time we got to the fourth game, we had had enough of Wrigley and have never had the chance to go back.

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!
