I caught a foul ball off the bat of Mark Ryal of the Phillies. I was sitting 4 rows behind the 3rd base dugout with my wife and my father-in-law. It was a line drive that I caught with one hand while I had my beer in the other hand. When we got home we had three messages on our answering machine and one was from my friend who lives in Philadelphia and happened to be watching the game and saw me on TV. I would love to get a tape of this game as I heard that even Fran Healy commented on what a great catch a fan made!

I was waiting for the right moment to ask my fiance to marry me, when the Mets hit 3 consecutive home runs! Its was amazing! Everyone in our section was cheering even more after they noticed what happened. We left and returned shortly after to more cheers! One of the best days ever..!

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!
