METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 24, 2011 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
March 5, 2012
My first Mets game in 2 months due to my illness and it was a great day! It all started when I got off the 7 train and there was the New York Lottery booth and guess who was signing autographs? Yolanda Vega!!! She's much more beautiful in person than she is on TV. (In my opinion, Yolanda would look amazing in a floral print bathing suit.)
It looked like a 60% chance of rain but it didn't even drizzle at all. There were way too many rude and crude Phillies fans. (They kept saying "The Mets are going home" etc.) but I shot back by saying "The only good things about Philly are ECW wrestling, Rocky Balboa and college basketball."
Our own Crash Davis, aka Val Pascucci, tied the game with a crushing HR and then David Wright got the game-winning hit as the Mets won 2-1. I was gonna stay for game 2 that night but me, my friend Kathy and her son Adam were all tired from a lot of things that have gone on lately. A nice last season victory over those cheese-steak-eating bums. (WE PREFER NATHANS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
