METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 5, 1985 GAME:

Some friends and I were at Shea that day -- Fan Appreciation Day, I believe. With the Mets trailing 4-1 late in the game, the scoreboard posted the Cardinals victory, which gave them the pennant regardless of what the Mets did. The whole crowd got on their feet and began CHEERING the Mets long and loudly in acknowledgement of a great effort and a great season, knowing in our hearts this was a team on the rise. Many fans drove home while cheering wildly with their heads out the windows and giving each other the "thumbs up." That seems like another era. Today, if a team doesn't win it ALL, so-called "fans" want to run them out of town and fire everyone from the GM to the groundskeepers.

After the Cardinals victory was posted and in what was now a meaningless game, Gary Carter hits an infield grounder and then runs with absolutely everything he has to try to beat it out. The guy just never quit.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
