I didn't go to this game, but my cousins did. I remember how excited I was to hear that Izzy beat Nomo, especially when Nomo was having his great year. It seemed at the time to be a preview of great things to come but alas, it was not to be (that expression seems to be a favorite of Met fans on this site, hmm...).

What a coincidence, I didn't go to this game either. I was looking forward to going to this game to see the new phenom Hideo Nomo, however the night before a friend calls me up to come to his party he threw at the last second. I figured I'd go for a couple of hours then leave. I was there 'till 3:30 am so I was too tired to go to Shea the next morning. So I watched on TV, in disgust because I wanted to have been there, my boy Butch Huskey go yard on Nomo and the Mets totally pushed him around.
Well I did get to see Nomo pitch a few years later for the Mets and everyone else pushed him around too. Go figure.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
