Great story. I was in the bleachers with my girlfriend rooting for the Mets and really getting a verbal beating from the ignorant Cubs fans. There is a tradition at Wrigley where some clown in the bleachers yells out to Sammy Sosa, "Hey Sammy, how many outs are there?" Sammy would turn around and answer by pounding on his chest and putting his hands to his lips denoting the number of outs. Cool thing to see once, but annoying when it happens every inning as in this case. Late in this extra inning affair the Cubs had the winning run on with 2 outs and Sammy at the plate. With the crowd on their feet going crazy and chanting "Sammy, Sammy, Sammy", he whiffs to end the rally. As the bleacher bums surrounding me all begin to sit down in disgust, brilliant me happily ascends from my seat and shouts out "Hey Sammy, how many outs are there?!!!" Nearly got my ass kicked. Lieter notched over 10 K's in a no decision and Mahomes got the win, ironically driving in the winning run in the 13th with a shot to left. This and the Friday game earlier were a treat to witness. Oh yeah, my girlfirend and I broke up soon afterwards largely due to my so called "attitude" displayed at this game.

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!
