This was the first game that I ever went to! Although it was too bad that it was a loss for the Mets, there's nothing like having your first day at a ballpark be a doubleheader, and they won the tail end. Even before I looked at your boxscore, I remembered that it was John Tudor vs. Rick Aguilera, and our starter in the second game was Randy Niemann, and there was a big buzz when HoJo went up to pinch-hit. You always remember your first! I was 7 years old and my uncle and I hopped on the old red #7 from Sunnyside. I wanted to stay for all of both games, but we left in the middle of the second one. You guys have done a great job with this site! Your attention to detail by putting up the box scores has helped me to recapture an important part of my youth.

This was the day the the crowd shots for the 'Lets Go Mets Go' video were filmed.

Between games, we were asked to scream Lets Go Mets Go and do a wave!

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!
