METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 9, 1964 GAME:

September 16, 2007
This was the first time I attended a Mets' game. My Dad had received box seat tickets right behind the Braves' dugout. Oddly enough, even though there were nothing but Met fans sitting behind the dugout, the Braves talked to us throughout the game. Most talkative was Rico Carty. The most polite and dignified was Henry Aaron. The shyest was Felipe Alou. The most demonstrative was Joe Torre. Galen Cisco did not last long but Bill Wakefield pitched very well and did not allow a hit. The roof caved in when Casey pinch hit for him and Larry Elliott got a walk. Larry Bearnarth came in and immediately got hammered. In the bottom of the inning, the big guy with the big smile, Joe Christopher, hit one into the left field bullpen to end all scoring. It still sits in my mind forty three years later as one of the best nights in my viewing baseball games. It was magic and even though Ron Hunt did not play, it was worth talking to Henry Aaron for one brief moment.

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!
