METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 22, 1967 GAME:

Probably the only game of the many Mets games I have seen in person that I remember the score. Why? It was my first time ever to a major league baseball game! I was 11. Shea Stadium, my Dad, lifelong memory. (I am now 53.) Thanks for the memories!

This was the first time I was able to see the Mets in person on my birthday. All I ever wanted for my birthday was a trip to see my Mets. Since I'd always been told that my Dad had taken me to the Polo Grounds in 1963 at age 2 and the Mets were always on the road on July 22 until that 1967 season, this was the first chance for me as an already eager young Mets fan to see in person on my "special day," the team which has evolved into the love of my life. Well I suppose after that woman I married (twice) and that kid we brought into this world 31 years ago.

I was always lucky to go to Shea somewhere around my birthday but this game will forever be etched in my memory since it fell on my birthday and my hero Jerry Grote (I was already a catcher in little league) had 2 hits including a homer. I recall not really understanding why Sandy Koufax was not pitching. (My first realization of pitching rotations.)

I remember us losing the game (but shockingly do not have any memory of the "great" Jerry Buchek getting 3 of the Mets 10 hits..LOL. I do recall my Dad buying me a felt "METS" pennant which got bent somewhere along on the bus ride home on that hot, humid Saturday. That pennant hung on my bedroom wall above the poster I got for Christmas of Tom Seaver (one of the ones with the dirt on the knee of his trail leg) for what seemed like forever.

I'm sure I was fortunate enough to have seen "My Mets" on other occasions on "my day" but that first time will always be special to me.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
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. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
