METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 23, 2005 GAME:

Lee Bromfield
October 15, 2008
I'm a Met fan from the UK and was over in NY for my best friend's bachelor party - he has family in Jackson Heights. I headed off to Shea that afternoon desperate to see Pedro pitch; I managed to score a Loge Box seat in section 1 right behind home plate - best seat Ive ever had at Shea. It was an exciting time as you could feel the Mets were stirring again, and despite a nightmare first inning in which we gave up 3 runs on 2 errors as I recall, Jose Reyes bunt singled on base on his first pitch and the comeback was on. It was great to see Pedro pitch before his skills began to fade away and it was also good to see a good crowd again and our young nucleus of Reyes, Wright and Beltran taking shape.

I floated back into Manhattan on the 7 train, convinced the whole bachelor party (12 of us) to go back to Shea the next day to see Kris Benson pitch a beauty in another win. My other memory of the Saturday game was that despite being 34 years old I was asked for ID at the concession stand!

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!
