It was glove night. My brother and I took his son (8) and my daugther (6) to their first game. Bobby O didn't have it...getting rocked for 4 runs in the first. we got one back, as Mookie led off with a solo shot...then added another...but the Mets would go down in flames that evening.

Hey, this is a neat little website. With the start of the 2002 Mets season, I was going back through my memory to try and figure out when I went to my very first baseball game (I was 7). I knew that Bobby O. was pitching for the Mets, and that they lost to the Giants. I also knew the game occured in 1986. I remembered Mookie hitting a home run, and that was enough information to narrow it down to this very game.

I also remember it being glove day...and getting my glove signed by Howard Johnson before the game.

The Mets did get shelled, giving up 15 hits. Not exactly a great example of how the Mets played through the course of the 1986 season, but I was hooked, and have been a lifelong fan ever since.

I remember going to this game with my friends Willie, Bob, and Dave. We were all up for the game figuring, Easy win. Bobby O has got the ball. Then the Mets ended up getting shelled. The highlight for us was when Mookie Wilson hit a homer into the Mets bullpen right past where we were sitting.

Oh man, this game was on my birthday and I was so excited to see my main man Straw. What a great birthday present from my grandfather. The lineups get announced and Danny Heep is playing RF. I nearly threw a tantrum. The night before was such an exciting game and now this game was a disaster as Bobby O got shelled. Worst birthday ever! And I feel like every game I went to Doug Sisk pitched. I really couldn't stand that guy.

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.
