This is weird, but I was 10-years-old when this game was played and this is the game which made me a Dodger fan for life. I started following baseball in 1971 and was a big Mets fan (I lived on Long Island). So, the week of this particular game, me and my family were visiting my grandparents in Flushing, Queens. The game was on T.V. but late at night, so I fell asleep before it was over. When I asked my Dad the next morning who won, he told me the Dodgers did. I asked him how and he said, and I remember this like it was yesterday...."Willie Crawford hit a grand slam home run." Since the game was in L.A., I figured Willie Crawford would be a god having done such as a great thing in front of the home town fans, and I figured he was a god for just hitting a grand slam and beating the Mets. From then on, I was fixated with the Dodgers, and I'm a fan to this day...All because of one grand slam in a game I fell asleep to.

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!
