Wow! What a crucial game. I didn't get to watch the whole game cause I left it in the bottom of the first when Ollie made Ryan Howard or Pat Burrell (I don't remember) pop up to end the bottom of the first. I was on my way to take the subway to go downtown to shop and hang out all day, but as soon as I came home I turned on the T.V. to check if the Mets won and by surprise the Mets were in the middle of a 3-hour rain delay and leading by one freaking run thanks to Carlos Beltran's solo shot.

I was kind of pissed off that the Mets were up by a run when they should have been winning by a couple more, but then Beltran in the top 9th with the clutch again driving in Jose Reyes from 3rd for the insurance run, I was saying "OK, now it's in the bag." Until Wagner blew it in the bottom of the ninth with one strike away to end it, I couldn't believe it.

The Mets bullpen was strong throughout extra innings and then the BIG HIT by Fernando Tatis with one on in the 12th, I jumped out of my chair with joy and almost hit my arms with the ceiling fan because of my height but I didn't freaking care cause the Mets took the lead and the Phillies sucked and Joe Smith nailed it down in the bottom of the 12th. GO METS! GREAT GAME!

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.
