Irish Night at Shea. 50,000 fans, 40,000 of whom are drunk, and all of us know how many outs there are. Poor Benny gakks in leftfield and hands a caught fly ball to a fan with two outs and two on. He thought it was the 3rd out! Both runners score on the play!

It was a wonderful feeling to be there and support Agbayani in spite of his error. Even when he struck out with guys on base, which he did twice that night, it wasn't BOOOO! but AWWWW! Zeile finally bailed him out with a clutch 2-run double in the 8th and everyone went home happy. What a great game!

I remember seeing the look on Benny Agbayani's face after he realized that that wasn't the third out. I seriously thought that he was going to cry.

Yeah, Benny blew it in the 4th. We all forgave him a few months later. Zeile's 2 run 2B in the 7th was the key blow. An old man sitting a few rows up from me in the Mezz got so cranked up, he jumped up when the ball was hit, and went spilling down a few rows until he landed right on my back. Scared the daylights out of me because I thought he was dead. Nope. Just excited. Wasn't even hurt either, although I'm sure he felt it the next day.

I was one of the drunk 40,000 and was sitting Field level not too far from where Benny handed the ball to a fan with 2 out. I sat on the Barry Bonds side of the field. I think Mike Bordick went yard to left field as well. I was driving a rental car and drove back to motel after Mets went ahead in 7th to avoid a traffic mess and and got home in time to see Armando get the last out.

I remember sitting in Left Field for this game. We lost sight of Benny catching the ball, and all we could see were Giants running the bases and wondering why Benny didn't throw the ball back to the infield. It wasn't til we got home and saw the replays that we found out what happened.

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.
