METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 31, 1988 GAME:

sappy Mets fan
December 23, 2009
On this day, I went to the game with my girlfriend at the time, Dave Magadan hit a foul ball into the Loge section behind home plate, the ball bounced around in front of me until it landed right in my hands. I was pumped! My first ball, though I acquired it in a very unimpressive fashion, ball rolling under the seats into my hands.

A little boy asked if he could see the ball, as he was looking at it, I thought how can I take the ball away from him? So I told the young lad to keep the ball.

Well my whole section I was seating in went crazy, thought I was the greatest. They started chatting to my girlfriend to "sleep with (me) tonight."

It was funny, a whole section of the stadium chatting for my girlfriend to do the right thing. That's why I'm a Mets fan. Never would that happen at Yankee Stadium.

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!
