This the real game that took place on June 14, 1987, noteworthy because it is the date cited in the classic "Seinfeld" Keith Hernandez spitting incident episode. On the show, the Mets lost to the Phillies at Shea. In real life, the Mets beat the Pirates at Three Rivers. My unhealthy exacting memory for dates recalls this for personal reasons. My girlfriend (now my wife) had to leave town on this date. Yet I still managed to sneak a few peeks at the TV while she packed.

Life is all about striking a balance.

Greg, you are 100% correct. I wonder why the "Seinfeld" producers were so exact about a date - did anyone check to see what really happened on June 14, 1987? Oh, well, its just a TV show.

This was my first Mets game. I was finishing up 1st grade, living in Indiana PA. I wish I could remember the plays, but all I remember is the stuffed Pirate Parrot that Dad bought me.

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.
