This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 11. It was a scheduled double-header with activities between the two games. We watched the beginning of the game at home on TV and then listened to it on the radio as we drove to Shea. It was the ninth inning by the time we could see the field. As we walked to our seats, the Mets proceeded to load the bases. It was a Sunday game and the Mets were in first in mid August and it was a beautiful day. So Shea was packed. We had just made it to our seats when Tim Teufel hit a sacrifice fly to left field. It was a close play at the plate, but when the umpire called Hojo 'safe', Shea erupted. It's quite a wonderful first memory of Shea.

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!
