This game was torture for Mets fans. I was at Game 1, freezing my ___ off, so I was happy to be on my couch for Game 2. It was such a drubbing and a long, ugly American-league-style game. I remember going out for a jog in about the 7th inning, even though it was dark and I had consumed some beers, because I could not stand to watch any more. Not quite the Mike Scoscia homer game, but still one of the post season's worst.

This is when I started to worry. They roughed up Doc. Evans went deep early and it was a dreary game. Losing the first two at home was not what I had in mind at the start of the series. Thank God for Lenny's homer leading off game three.

I was at this game. What a dreary drag. Gooden was knocked around and Clemens wasn't much better. I remember Keith Hernandez throwing to second on a bunt play and bouncing it into Santana's chest. Howard Johnson came up as a pinch-hitter in the fourth or fifth inning with a couple of runners on, when it was still a game, and hit the ball a mile, but the wind held it up and it was caught or it blew foul. Would have been a home run on a normal day.

It was at this point that many of us began to think that the '86 Series would be something worth forgetting. I remember the next game, the first one at Fenway, which the Mets won easily, and still thought that in terms of excitement, thrills, and suspense, this Series would never measure up in history. Who knew what was coming...

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.
