METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 24, 2004 GAME:R
April 1, 2007
So I take my wife to this game. It is a beautiful late summer Saturday evening and we have decent seats in the mezzanine section behind home plate. I'm telling my wife that the last time I sat here was back in 1977 and Steve Garvey hit a foul ball that I just missed off the tip of my glove and watched someone else get. Annoyed me for years. I tell her that maybe we'll get another chance tonight as this is good foul ball territory. We have aisle seats as that is her preference. Couple of innings into the game Andruw Jones fouls one off and in an instant, I know it is on a direct trajectory for us! I've got two options, 1. push her out into the aisle so I can reach the ball or 2. stretch for it and hope I can snag it away from the guy sitting in front of us. I glance at her, she glares back, option 2. I try to straddle her and reach for it but the guy sitting in front of me wearing a Mets jersey with WEINSTEIN emblazoned on the back simply remains sitting in his chair and makes a lazy basket catch into his mitt. The fans cheer and several off duty NYC Fireman even begin chanting his name! I don't know what happened the rest of the night. Didn't care either.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
