My first ever Mets game and what a game it was. Thinking of this game today as us Mets fans mourn the passing of the great Gary Carter (2/16/2012). A day I will never forget!

I think this was my third game at Shea. I was 8. I remember being stuck in terrible traffic on the way; my dad was driving from New Jersey. The game started while we were still on our way. We were listening to the game on the radio and when we got reception on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel, Murph said that Steve Garvey had just hit a home run.
We got to Shea as fast as we could and we got to our seats in the Mezzanine section. I'm sure we got there by the sixth to see Gary's first homer, but we were certainly in time enough to see Lance McCullers come in from the bullpen to pitch to Gary in the eighth. We all booed McCullers relentlessly and then Gary blasted his second home run and we all went wild. Of course Gary came out for a curtain call. It had to be one of the best Gary Carter moments at Shea, his two-homer game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
