Damn you, Armando! We we're so close. Why can't you just blow your saves in less significant looking situations?

This just may have been the most agonizing game I have ever watched. At least starting from the top of the ninth inning. We had to get a new portable phone because the volume adjuster came off from me throwing it in anger. I felt sort of bad my folks bought a new one. The phone was fine except for the volume adjuster. I told them they should have sent the bill to Armando Bumnitez. Whoops, I mean Benitez. Note my sarcasm in the previous sentence. I think Bobby V. should have brought John Franco or someone else in right after Brian Jordan hit the home run to make it 4-3. But, as he has done a lot, he stayed with a pitcher too long.

Worse then the Pendleton game in 1987. I was sitting in the upper deck. I never heard Shea get so quiet since I've started watching baseball again in 1998. Worse feeling ever leaving a ballpark.

This was when the Mets needed a win, they had a lead, and Benitez blew it by giving up a homer to Brian Jordan and then giving up more runs.

I remember this game clearly. It was the first, and only time I caught a foul ball. It was hit off B.J. Surhoff's bat in the 10th or 11th inning. Even though the Mets lost (horribly!), I'll never forget this game.

I caught the foul ball with my 11 month old baby in my arms. I am looking for the video of this game to share with her. I hope someone can help
