This was banner day. The game was sold out or near as it was the year after the Championship. I went with a great kid from the box in front of us with his banner down the ramps to join the parade. Mets are down 2-1 at the time. We were far enough back on line that we were behind the scoreboard, so we couldn't see anything, but could hear the crowd and the PA system.

The Bucs scored a run at the top of the 8th (Pitt 3 NY 1). The bottom of the 8th lasted (seemingly) forever. The Pirates made two pitching changes and the crowd was screaming. We figured out that the Mets tied it (it turned out to be a 2 run, 2 out Strawberry triple, so you could imagine the noise) when they announced a Pirate batter leading off the top of the 10th. Turns out that Pittsburgh scored in the top of the 10th, but the Mets scored 2 in the bottom of the 10th to win it. The place went wild for a long time, but we had no idea why.

After a wait for them to set up the reviewing stand, the line finally moved and when we came up to the outfield fence, I looked through and the huge expanse of stands was in front of us. In awe, I walked in through the spot where Tommie Agee once stood. It was the only time I ever got to walk through the field at Shea. You came all the way in to just behind 2B. Looking up at the stands from there was like being inside of a dream. I spotted our section. Everybody was on their feet waving and clapping. I tipped my hat to them and they became even more animated. It was one of the coolest moments of my life.

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!
