I watched this game on WWOR, and even though it was a Friday night Dwight Gooden start (5 innings/7 Ks), the thing I remember is when Mike Fitzgerald broke his finger. I remember the camera was on him right after it happened, and it looked like he touched it or did something to it, and when he did that, I remember him making a sudden, almost violent movement backwards, like a backwards somersault. It was so quick and I've never seen a replay, but to me it looked like he did a backwards somersault from the pain. It was quite shocking to me as a kid, whatever happened after he broke his finger.

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!
