METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 30, 2010 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
February 15, 2011
On a beautiful Friday night at Citi Field where Mike Pelfrey had a rough 1st inning, where David Wright hit two long home runs, where Raul Valdes looked like the Exxon Valdes, where two guys ran onto the field waving Mexican flags protesting the Arizona immigration law until the Keystone Cops aka Citi Field security caught up with them; those two were lucky that they didn't get destroyed by former Mets C John Stearns or former Baltimore Colts linebacker Mike Curtis. I got to sit in the Pepsi Porch (not bad seats) and had to endure a Mets "fan" who had bet on the D'Backs and every time the D'Backs scored, he went crazy until I moved to another part of the porch. If you want to bet on sports go to Vegas or to the horse racetrack not Citi Field. Then in the bottom of the 9th, Mr. Mike Torrez -- er I mean Aaron Heilman -- came in to get the save for the D'Backs and I made 100% sure that I constantly reminded him about 9th inning, game 7 of the 2006 NLCS where he served that dagger in the heart to every Mets fan aka the HR to Yadier "Bleeping" Molina.

I was at this crazy game. Sat in the Pepsi Porch, wound up sitting next to a Mets fan who told me that he had bet the D-Backs. In my opinion, that's a big bowl of WRONG!!!! David Wright hits 2 long dingers in the cavernous Citi, a couple of dudes run onto the field protesting Arizona's anti-immigration law as the security detail catches them (where's John Stearns and/or former Baltimore Colt LB Mike Curtis when you need 'em). Guess who comes into the game for the D-Backs in the bottom of the 9th? The "grandson" of Ralph Branca and the "son" of Mike Torrez: Aaron Heilman and the remaining crowd lets him have it as I constantly remind him he's the main reason why the Mets were in their living rooms instead of taking on the Detroit Tigers in the 2006 World Series!!!!! In true ironic fashion, Heilman gets the save!!!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
