My dad usually took me to a Met Game every year for my birthday. This year it landed exactly on my 13th birthday. My dad got us Press Box seats from some unknown connection and I was having the time of my life. Unfortunately my Mom was pregnant with my younger sister. We all thought she would give birth later in August but she started experiencing early labor pains that night at home. My Dad called her and felt we needed to leave before the game was over. I would have none of this as the game was tied and I was having a great time. When Duffy Dyer hit the game winning homer in the eighth, I felt justified in staying for the final out. Fortunately my mom held out and gave birth the next day. Boy was happy and damn lucky, no way my dad was staying for extra innings!

Please note:
We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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.

Thank you!
