As a senior in high school, Fireworks Night at Shea was a game that about a dozen of my friends and I attended in hopes of seeing the budding young phenom named Jason Isringhausen throw his first no-hitter. Of course, as we've all come to see, Isringhausen turned out to be a real bust and there was no no- hitter coming that night. Instead, Isringhausen was shelled and the Mets' managed to put one measly run on the board courtesy of Butch Huskey's solo shot late in the game. I think the name Butch Husky stands for "one who hits solo home runs of no consequence" in Swahili because that came to be his claim to fame. Anyway, despite the 13 to 1 drubbing, my friends and I managed to enjoy ourselves...that is until the fireworks were set off accompanied by the garage-band wailings of some band called "The Fool". The name of the band says it all folks, because that night the Mets were indeed playin' the fool...

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!
