METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 3, 1982 GAME:

One memorable note from this game: Larry Bowa hit into a triple play in the 8th inning against the Mets. He hit a pop fly to Bob Bailor at SS who flipped to Wally Backman to double Jay Johnstone off of 2B and Backman flipped to Dave Kingman to catch Gary Woods off 1B. Mets lost anyway 5-0.

Mets also pulled off another triple play against the Cubs at Shea later in the year on September 29th.

In late innings, Dave Kingman foul-tipped one into the lower seating area behind home, just to the First Base side of the protective net. The ball loudly smacked a woman - who was carrying two beers down the aisle - right square in the chops. First, she spun around, beer splashing all over. Then she went down, like a sack of potatoes. With Kingman looking on, the Andy Frains swarmed her. After about 2 minutes with a hushed crowd watching in anticipation on this very hot afternoon, the lady thankfully revived and got to her feet, to much applause and the relief of all.

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!
