My very first Mets game!!!!

I don't exactly remember the details of the game. But I was just in awe of the green grass the sights and sounds it was incredible! The other thing I remember is that we got these tickets through some Dairylea promotion does anybody remember this promotion? You had to send in coupons I believe they had to equal 20 points and that was good for one ticket, I member packing the envelope and sending these coupons in and the tickets arriving a few weeks later. The whole thing brings back great memories.

Its funny, this was my very first Mets game as well. We got there right after the game started and I remember Matlack pitching and he was already in trouble. The biggest thing I remember about the game is Nate Colbert hitting a 9th-inning home run into the parking lot.

I will never forget my first sight of the field when I walked up the ramp, and saw that big giant scoreboard for the first time. It was a magical night and one I will never forget. Only 7 years old at the time, but remember like it was yesterday.

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.
