METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 6, 2007 GAME:Robert Maturo
July 27, 2012
I remember being excited for this game. This was the first game my girlfriend (now wife) and and I went to together. I took a broom with me because we were going for the sweep. However, the day did not go well at all. I got a speeding ticket driving up to the game from Tucson. Then when we got to the stadium, the bag checker/ticket takers wouldn't let me bring the broom into the stadium and broke it right in front of me. And that broom breaking seemed to put a personal Mets spell on me, because they went on to lose that game, and I haven't seen them win in person since. I went to one Dback games in 08; they lost that one. I went to 3 Padre games that same year and they lost all 3 of them 2-1. I went to 2 Dback games in 09, they lost in both of those. Then I went to all 3 games in both 2010 and 2011, only to watch them get swept in both series. I'm going up this Saturday and Sunday praying that my streak will end!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
