Bobby Jones homered in this game. The next time a Mets pitcher homered was more than three years later--June 15, 2002--the infamous Shawn Estes off the infamous Roger Clemens.

My friend Tom and I got tickets for this game that morning. He was in the bathroom when Jones hit the home run. He did not believe me when he got back. I was sitting just one level above where the home run landed in left field. You can get a good look at me on the video of that shot.

My brother bought me a bootleg Home Opening Day t-shirt in the parking lot after the game. I still wear it.

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!
