I will always remember this game, because I was able to talk my wife into driving down to Philadelphia to see the Mets clinch. At first she resisted, until I promised her dinner at a fancy restaurant. (We ended up eating hot dogs at the Vet.) As it turned out most of the fans came down from NY, and my wife was interviewed by Ch 7 newsman John Johnson as to what made her come down to Philly. Her answer was (as she pointed at me) him in the METS shirt and cap. Because we did not clinch, I tried to talk her into staying over and going to the Sunday game. I struck out this time!

It was the only Mets game I EVER attended that the Mets was the visiting team. Veterans Stadium was 15 years old at the time; it looked like it was 150 and the turf had the color of a worn out billards table. Me, my cousin and my late brother (who was a fan of the Bronx team) drove down to Philly, got there 1 1/2 hours before game time and sat in the upper deck in right field (not too high up though). I remember all the Mets fans being there and knowing the reputation of Philly sports fans. During the game, the Philly PD started harassing Mets fans (this was the year after they bombed the MOVE HQ's) and my brother who had some adult liquid in him wanted to take on Philly's finest but I told him to sit down. After the game, which we lost 6-5 and didn't clinch, we're getting out of the parking lot which took forever, when all of a sudden right next to us were 2 gorgeous blondes in a Camaro with Delaware plates. I asked my cousin to dump my brother in Philly and we were gonna follow those ladies to Delaware. My bro overheard this and was pissed; we headed back to North Jersey anyway.

I remember buying tickets at the Ticketmaster in Macys the morning of the game. A Mets win would clinch the pennant, the Mets first in 13 years after many years of abject failure. This was the first time I ever drove a long distance and I very excited driving on Jersey Turnpike and seeing all that Met regalia worn by occupants of neighboring cars.

I had great seats right behind the plate in the 700 level. Watching the game in a park so different from Shea was a new experience for me and I actually was impressed with The Vet. The open air 700 level concourses were a lot less dirty, grimy and smelly than the lower concourses. Future Phil Lenny Dykstra knocked the first pitch of the game over the wall against future Met Mike Maddux, however the Mets would lose and wound up clinching several days later at Shea.

I do remember watching with binoculars scary activity in the right field seats. I was not just a regular ballpark fight; it was downright mini-riot pitting Mets fans with the Philadelphia Police.

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.
