METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 12, 2003 GAME:Mr. Sparkle
August 13, 2003
Come on!!! I know Barry Bonds is great and all but do Mets fans have to give him a standing ovation when he hits a home run? No way. I can't figure it out. I'm a Met fan and I root for the Mets first and everything else is secondary. I respect Barry Bonds but I would never cheer an opponents home run, never. It was nice to see the Mets fans give Alfonso a standing O as a great ex-Met (who has pretty much crapped the bed for the Giants) but that was only applauding his appearance in the game. If he had homered I would not have appluaded. There is a difference and I would not applaud Bonds' appearance. But he is awesome. The Homer he hit off of Weathers in the 9th was a rocket shot. It's amazing that he is hitting over .500 against Weathers. It was nice to see Heilman get a win but he was hardly great. He could have easily lost. Also nice to see Grant Roberts have a decent inning.
The Mets announcers said that Mets fans got what they wanted, a Bonds show and a Mets win. Please! I root for a no-hitter every game I see, not for the opponent to have a great game but lose.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
