This is the first Mets game I ever attended. My dad knew some of the ushers, so he got us in box seats on the 3rd base line. I was five years old, and until I found this site remembered little about the game other than the final score (8-3 in 16 innings) and that Seaver and Billingham started. Good memories.

I remember this game very well. It was one of my favorite childhood memories.

I was 8 years old and day camp had ended for the summer. My brother, who was 11, and I were sitting around the house watching TV when my mom decided that we needed to get out of the house. She called my friend's mom and we all hopped onto the Q44 bus line to Roosevelt Avenue to go to Shea to catch this afternoon game.

I remember that we didn't arrive until the 3rd inning and I was upset that we had already missed some of the game. My mother and her friend were chatting while the game went into extra innings. At 5:30 p.m or so, my mother noticed that the game was still going on (day games started at 2:00 p.m. in those days) and started to bug us about leaving, since she needed to get home to make dinner for my dad. We whined and complained and ended up staying for the whole games. We got home about 7:30 p.m. Even though they lost, what a great day.

I was this game as a 18-year-old Met and Tom Seaver fan. He mowed down the Big Red Machine, but his weak-hitting team couldn't get him that one run he needed. I'm 55 now and still consider Seaver one of the best of my lifetime.

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.
