McGwire Fever! Poor sports, my pal and I booed him while everyone else cheered. Nothing against Big Mac, we were just concerned that our team, the home team, won and hung in in the very sweaty wild card race. A really drunk, really large guy sitting in front of us, wearing a McGwire batting practice jersey (haven't seen any of them lately, surprising considering it wasn't all that long ago and they must be pretty expensive) cursed us out. "Who do the Mets have?" he demanded. "Rusty Staub?" The great moment of this game was Turk striking out McGwire with runners on. The Wild Card dream would torture us right to the end of this mixed bag season, but at least we won this battle.

I'm at this game against the Cardinals in 1998 and every time McGwire gets up these kids who are wearing Cardinal McGwire 25 shirts who wouldn't know who holds the record for most HRs in a rookie season (hint, its Mark McGwire) all cheering and going nuts for McGwire and I'm muttering to myself "I'd really would love to flip these kids a double bird and tell them to **** off." Well when Reynoso struck him out I muttered, "I think Reynoso did it for me!"

I remember sitting in the last row of the upper deck. This is what baseball is all about, 1-0 game, any swing can win or tie the game. Unfortunately half the fans missed the end because they all left after McGwire's last at bat.

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.
