METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 8, 2006 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
November 1, 2006
Friend of mine handed me tickets (he couldn't go); Sat in the "Uecker Seats" in Section 24 Uppers! It was Taiwan Night and the Dodger P (can't remember his name) from Taiwan gives the Mets batters fits. Nomar hits a HR; I kept imitating Jimmy Fallon's drunk Beantown teenager Sully from SNL when Nomar came up to bat (NOMAH!) I kept 4 fans sitting behind me in stitches. Boring game except when Beltran makes a leaping catch and they only played 45 seconds of the "Curly Shuffle" BOO!!!! After the game, Waited for the crowd to disperse and struck up a conversation with a nice woman named Wanda (a fellow Mets fan) and I let her read my FOR METS FANS ONLY book until she got off the 7 train at her stop and we waited for the players to come out of the Diamond Club entrance, got a glimpse of Ron Darling. Even though it was a shutout loss, it was a nice night at Shea.

I attended this game, only to watch Hong-Chih Kuo demoralize the Mets. No doubt he will be a good pitcher in the future, but he picked the wrong team to beat.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
