Fireworks night, also the day that NASA landed the rover on Mars. It was also an important night for the wild-card hopeful Mets, who defeated Al Leiter and the Marlins. A birthday present for myself and my friends, we sat in the field level down the first base line. Lousy seats, but we were treated to the debut of a little-known catcher by the name of Todd Pratt (I can remember my friends and I groaning at the absence of Todd Hundley from the lineup, then Pratt comes up and homers to give the Mets the lead). Crisp victory for the Mets, fireworks were great, and my friends and I made a sticky mess of cracker jack, Pepsi and peanut shells on the floor that had hardened by the eighth inning.

What a way to spend the 4th of July, by being at Shea and watching the Mets vs the Marlins. Me and my friend Kathy had traded our opening day rainout tickets for Fireworks Night! Rick Reed was great that night and Bernard Gilkey hits a home run. At the time, who would of thought that the Marlins would be World Series Champions three months later? And Bobby "Earplugs/I'll Show You The Bronx" Bonilla K'd three times!

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!
