Thru This Game


October 6, 2006
I was in Washington for this game and got to see Frank Robinson make his final speech and his final managerial appearance, after 51 years in professional baseball. As for the Mets, they had a great game, Julio Franco had another nice day, driving in the first run of the game. Probably the funniest part of the experience was the President's Race. At RFK Stadium, they do this thing called the President's Race, where four mascots dressed as presidents with huge heads (George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt). In the standings, George Washington and Abe Lincoln each have about 15 wins, and Jefferson has 10, but Teddy Roosevelt has never won a race. So, on the last day, the other presidents stopped and let Teddy race alone to the finish line. However, it took him so long to get there that he got disqualified, so Teddy Roosevelt never won a race at RFK Stadium. This was the one time I ever felt bad for a mascot.

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.
