METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 26, 1976 GAME:

This was a very special day at the beginning of my Met fanatasism. I was so enthralled with the Mets at the age of 7 that my whole family forgot about me watching this game in my aunt's basement, that they left for my cousin's wedding without me and I didn't even realize it. The only thing I can remember from the wedding is that John Milner hit a grand slam and that the Mets won 10-2. I've suffered from Met Fan Disease ever since and hold a special place for The Hammer in my memories.

This was a Saturday afternoon game at Wrigley, the middle game of a 3-game series that the Mets swept.

After falling behind, 1-0 on a Rick Monday leadoff home run in the first, the Mets scored 6 in the top of the third inning. Felix Millan singled to tie the game and then Milner hit his grand slam to make it 5-1. Kingman followed with a home run (his 25th) and it was 6-1. Kranepool drove in two more with a bases loaded single in the fifth, and the other Mets runs scored on a triple by Del Unser and a homer by Mike Phillips, one of only 11 homers in his career.

Jerry Koosman allowed just two more hits after Monday's homer and Bob Apodaca came in to get the last seven outs.

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!
