This was the first Met game I ever watched, being a young 6 year old, I don't think I was too upset at the outcome, but I remember Keith Miller stumbling all over himself in centerfield, and Bobby Bonilla hitting an absolute bomb into the parking lot in rightfield off of Jeff Innis I believe, but it set a tone for the whole season and the tight games between the Bucs and Mets all season.

I wish I was at this game but I had to listen on the radio at work on the sly because I had a foreman at the time who was a real you-know-what and a type of a guy who was a real YES, SIR that would kiss the higher-ups behind 24/7. If I had been caught with the radio, I woulda been automatically suspended since he didn't give a darn about baseball. Luckily I got to catch the last few innings once I got home. BUMMER!!!! In reality, I shoulda called in sick!!!!

An EXTREMELY rare opening day loss for the Mets during a period when it seemed we won on opening day every single year. As a matter of fact, after 1969, our record on day one has been unbelievable.

Was at this game sitting in Field Level box in right field. Was not the opening day a fan would remember when the Mets lose 12-3. It was the first time in Gooden's career he lost on opening day and the first time ever he was under .500 at any point during a season. Most of the time I try to stay the whole game no matter what the score is. I was not able to stay for the whole game on this day as Passover was starting later in the day and had to get home to prepare for the sedar with the family.

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.
