METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 29, 2008 GAME:Jose
August 31, 2008
Well another AMAZIN' come from behind win, hahaha. I was at a bar watching this game. I left the bar because I was mad that the Mets were losing, so when I got home and turned on the TV I saw the Mets had the bases loaded in the 9th with 2 outs with Beltran coming up. I was like, oh no, this is going to take a while especially the way Beltran has been hitting lately, so I got up to get something to drink in the kitchen. As soon as I opened the fridge to get my water I hear Gary Cohen screaming at the mike "ITS OUTTA HERE, ITS OUTTA HERE!!!" I ran out the kitchen and I see the ball landing in the right field seats of Dolphin Stadium. I was jumping for joy and almost cried my ass off of happiness. I have a good feeling about this Mets team. I think there is something special waiting for the Mets at the finish line when it's all said and done.

All was lost until Beltran came up to bat and really HIT a home run 12 ways to Christmas and then some. Howie Rose's call on WFAN was off the hook; I'm surprised that he didn't start yelling BELTRAN-BELTRAN-BELTRAN like he yelled MATTEAU-MATTEAU-MATTEAU in 1994. Probably one of the most classic dingers in Mets history along with Straw off the Busch Stadium clock in '85; Nails in Game 3 of the '86 NLCS, Pratt vs Arizona in '99 and Piazza's emotional round tripper 10 days after 9-11-2001.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
