The last of my famous Mets-Phillies matchups with my rabid Phillies fan uncle at the old craphole known as the Vet.

It was a weekday day game. I had seats on the 3rd base side. The field temperature was 150 degrees, due to the refracting of the heat off the concrete they played on at that dump. I felt like I was in an oven. The stadium smelled like rotten meat, like it usually did on hot days at the Vet.

This was a rare win for the Mets that year. Both sides had ugly pitching. They must have used 15 pitchers between the two teams. A pretty uneventful and sloppy game all around.

The only other thing I remember was that it was the same day that our boys in Iraq gunned down Sadaam's sons. A Mets victory and vermin being exterminated. Not a horrible day at all!

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!
