METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 9, 1992 GAME:Michael
December 28, 2010
It's funny, whenever people get really excited about early season victories that are won in exciting fashion, they think it's a sign of great things to come later in the season.. I ALWAYS refer back to the 1992 Mets. They actually had a lot of pretty exciting wins early on, and this one was one of them.
Dave Magadan of all people hits a walk-off homer to win it this Saturday afternoon and the Mets were rolling and looking great.
See why that "exciting victory" thing is a myth?

First major league ball game I had ever been to. I was only 8 at the time and didn't sleep one hour the night before the game because I was so hyped up. I sat a few rows back from third base when the price of those seats were cheaper than anything in the current Citi Field!
For the game itself it was 2-2 going into the ninth inning when Dave Magadan hit a three run homer in the bottom of the ninth. I remember after that being so happy and thinking the Mets are winning the World Series!!
I suppose if I was older I would seen the big picture more and realized that was a bright moment in an otherwise disappointing season. Sadly also as I got older, while I still follow the Mets, I realized I would never have that love toward the sport as so many things since then have clouded my enjoyment.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
