METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 26, 1986 GAME:

Richard Biever
October 25, 2001
I drove down to this game from the Indianapolis area to see the Mets and visit a buddy and his wife living in the area and for some r&r.

My friends weren't baseball fans but were willing to join me in my celebration of this glorious season the Mets were having. These three games with Atlanta would be the only opportunities I had to see the Mets this entire World Championship season.

This was to have been a Friday night game, but it was rained out. So, I got to see a double header, my first ever.

My friends were going to act as Braves fans simply to give me a hard time. Instead they ended up consoling me. The Mets looked like the 1983 Mets or something! Keith Hernandez said after the double header it was the worse the Mets had played all season!

Just the luck of a Hoosier-born Mets fan, I guess.

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. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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!
