I was barely seven years old and this was my first baseball game. The year before I had asked to go see the Yankees but my dad (an absolute Giants fan, though he grew up a block from Yankee Stadium and had stories of Bill Dickey umpiring games for him and his friend when he was a kid) told me that "there is no baseball in New York." In March of 1962 I put my name in a drawing at the Daitch Shopwell supermarket near my house and won two tickets to this double-header! We drove to the end of the subway and took that to the Polo Grounds and I remember being surprised that it "had Met logos (the NY) all over it" and couldn't understand what my dad was talking about when he kept referring to the Giants. I don't remember anything about the game except being sure, to the very end, that somehow the Mets would come back and win. Of course they didn't, but it made no difference, I've been a Mets fan ever since.

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!
