METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 10, 1992 GAME:Joe From Jersey
December 28, 2005
This was the first home game of the Torborg era or error. Current manager Willie Randolph batted 2nd; Ken Hill of the Expos shut us out with a complete game and Doc took the lost. Plus, this is the only Mets game I ever went where I did NOT have a hot dog because the game took place on Friday during Lent (Good Friday was the next week) and as a Catholic, you cannot eat meat on Friday during Lent. I had cheese pizza instead. From then on, I always make sure NOT to go to Shea on a Friday during Lent.

Joe, you stayed loyal to the faith better than I did that day. I was at this game and was lucky enough to be offered free food since my cousin's girlfriend, who not Catholic, was working at the concession stand. I felt the need to take advantage of the opportunity and, ignoring that it was a Lenten Friday, gave in to temptation by consuming a hot dog. I should have taken the pizza like you did.
The game wasn’t worth remembering. The Mets hitters were just lifeless and got shut out by Ken Hill.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
