Ah man, not such a great game to be at for your first ever visit to Shea. It was the tail end of my junior year of high school, and my good buddy and I had a bit of Spring Fever and decided to cut that day and go to this series-ending day game.

It was ridiculously cold that day for a late April afternoon. Glendon Rusch pitched a great game, only to have Mr. Clutch (Armando Benitez) give up the go-ahead run in the 12th to some scrub named Gookie Dawkins. The Mets offense was its usual anemic self that day.

The only other memories of this game I have was Rickey Henderson dogging it down to second in a lame attempt to steal, the crowd calling for Scott Williamson's death when he kept tossing the ball to Sean Casey at 1st 58 times every time a runner got on base during a 12-inning game on a 40 degree day, and letting Griffey have it for not signing with us. (We all saw what a big loss that was!)

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
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!
