Well, both Game 1 and 2 were probably close to the most memorable regular season games I've attended--I was sitting 6 rows back between 3rd base and shallow left, my first trip to Wrigley with my travel contingent (brother, brother's brother-in-law (Doc), and Stu (heretofore refered to as Spammy)...A noon doubleheader, beautiful sunshine, AND A MET SWEEP-- Good natured ribbing of Todd Hundley as he mascaraded as a major league leftfielder...significant beer consumption, great conversation in the stands with "Darned nice Mid-westerners"..a kid grabbed a foul ball next to us in his first baseball game..Doc needed one as he got some sunburn-- Poisonous Sunburn, and thus was moving kind of slow due to it..but the best part was post game festivities...A trip across the street to the famed "Pink House"...The 4 of us bought out Juan the icecream cart vendor for $50, and was our ticket to a keg party upstairs...Grooving to the sound of "Smack my bitch up" by Prodigy, watching my bro holding court with recent college grads on a lounge chair with perfect view of homeplate...watching the groundscrew manicure the magic of Wrigley as the sun set...the walk over to Slugger's for more cocktails ..A Perfect Baseball Day...Unfortunately the hangover lasted 2 days with both Met losses Sat./Sun....good matchup on the Sunday though...Kerry Wood vs. Rick Reed! Wrigley is the best ballpark, BAR NONE!

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.
