Mets really bombed out bad in this game. I even remember Murphy saying his old phrase, "The Mets have really run into harrrrrd times".

I was at this game. We got there early enough to see batting practise. Keith Hernandez had joined the team the month before so Dave Kingman hardly played at this point. During BP Kingman didn't hit and didn't take fielding practice. He was nowhere on the bench during the game. He did pinch hit later on and he hit the highest goddamn popup over the infield in major league history. The ball took about ten minutes to come down. Of course the ball was caught for an easy out. Even when Kingman did absolutely nothing he still managed to leave you with a memory.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
