May 9, 2005
My first visit to Shea Stadium. I was 7 years old at the time. My Dad and I had great seats, Fat Jack Fisher was on the mound, and the Mets won! Joe Christopher drove in a couple of runs, the Mets' fielding was good, and they beat the defending champs. All in all, a great initiation to live baseball. The stadium wasn't full, and in retrospect, it was probably because the '64-'65 Worlds Fair was winding down next door in Flushing Meadows Park, and visitors were more likely to go to fair than the game. Despite obvious realities, I assumed that Mets would always win when I attended. Unfortunately, my youthful optimism didn't pan out.

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!
