Great win for the Mets! I was happy to see this team bounce back after a tough loss. Mets showed tremendous heart and desire as this was a huge game that the Mets needed to win. Here is to a strong weekend performance against a good Marlins team. I am thinking playoffs!

Great game and shades of the 86 World Series (game 6)! Down two runs to end up winning it and Church came around to score. (Church was batting 6th, as did Knight.) Mark my words, the Mets will win the World Series this year. How many other teams can win 89 games with their bullpen as it is? (There's a special magic that won't be realized until later...)

This was my final game at Shea. It came full circle from my first game in 1978 against the Giants to my last in 2008. I tried to remember all the places I sat in those 30 years. I had my folks with me also celebrating 45 years...of marriage. I thank God the rain held up. My seats were Mezzanine Reserved Section 21 Row J. I noticed the seats had the MLB certificate of authenticity sticker on them. Some idiot signed their name on the seat with black sharpie. Micah Hoffpauir? Cubs 1B. WHO? Hits his 1st two major league HR's. I was hoping Schoeneweis would plunk him his 4th time up. I thank God again for the victory. Beltran's rope off Hoffpauir's glove for a victory. It was bittersweet. An older gentleman and his wife who sat behind me left early. As I shook his hand, I told him, he's gonna miss another miracle. As he reached the tunnel, he looked around and gave Shea a goodbye wave.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
