What a great night at Shea! Took my Mom (who grew up a Brooklyn Dodgers fan) to her first game at Shea in over 20 years for Jackie Robinson Night. President Clinton was there. I said "hi" to Spike Lee in the corridor. Mom chatted with comedienne Elaine Boozler. Jerry was the only one missing! And the Mets played well, Reynoso pitched well, and it was a solid shut-out victory.

One of my all-time favorite nights at Shea. Honoring Jackie Robinson's 50th Anniversary of breaking the race barrier in the presence of his wife, Commissioner Selig, President Clinton was a highlight of my life. It was amazing to observe the multigenerational families: the grandparents who remembered Jackie and came to the game with their children and grandchildren who only know the legend. I, too, was there with my mother as well as my two young sons. That the Mets won the game was only a sidelight.

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.
