I started the game in the nose bleed section of the upper deck in right field.My friend and I snuck down to the seats right behind the aux. scoreboard, also in right field. It was a matchup of Hall-of Famers, Gibson vs. Ryan. Ryan did not go the distance, but won anyway. I was 18 at that time. Lets Go Mets!

I went to see the Mets face the NL Champ cards. (I was 10.) I was sure the Mets would lose, because unfortunately, Bob Gibson was facing the Mets #5 starter, Nolan Ryan. Gibby ran into Tim McCarver under a foul popup in the first, which led to a 3-run rally, and the Mets won. Unbelievably, Gibson was losing in the 7th and batted for himself (and homered) and still trailing by a run was sent up to make the last out in the 9th. That's not how they play now. Anyway, revisionism as it were, I get to tell the world I saw Ryan beat Gibson.

I was 15. My father came home early from work, told me a friend had given him two tickets to see the Mets that night, so on the the spur of the moment we traveled from Albany, N.Y. We sat in the upper deck near the right field foul pole. As I remember it, Gibson made Agee look bad on two pitches in the first, then gave up a ringing double to right center and the Mets were on their way. At the game's conclusion, a man seated behind us said, "Man, I love this team!"

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.
