METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 26, 1991 GAME:
April 5, 2006
I have very vague memories of this game. I was in the car with my father and mother. We were going on some long trip for Memorial Day weekend. My father flipped on the radio for the score, and I heard all kinds of things that no 7-year-old probably should hear.
14 to F'IN 4!! JESUS H CHRIST!!! Stop snorting coke Gooden, damn you!!! 5 years ago seems like an eternity!!! 14-4!! Son of a....
Then my mom yelled at my father for his potty mouth! Ahhh childhood...
Now I'm 22, and my father yells at me to calm down when Looper blows a save or when Randolph makes some idiotic double switch or leaves Dae- Sung Koo or Danny Graves in for 2 more innings then he should. My mother yells at both of us to shut up now. The circle of life is complete!

I have very vague recollections of this game. I was 8 years old, and my family was on a long drive for a Memorial Day weekend vacation. My father flips on the radio and hears the score. He starts muttering all kinds of stuff that 8 year olds probably shouldn't hear. "Fourteen to eff'n 4! Jesus H Christ! What the hell's wrong with you, Gooden??!" My mom yelled at my father to cut it out, but she just didn't understand! It was my first true taste of how much a labor of love it would forever be to root for the Mets! But when you get seasons like this year, it's ultimately worth it!
