METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 10, 1999 GAME:Uncle Peanut
January 11, 2002
I went to Montreal for this game (I was living in Watertown at the time). Montreal is a great place to go see the Mutts on the road because you can get killer seats for $30 CANADIAN (about 21 bucks American dough). Won in extra innings on hits by Todd Pratt and Matt Franco, very exciting.
In Montreal they serve mixed drinks, I was loaded on Amaretto and Coke (they were out of rum).

The city of New York was buzzing on this day because Roger Clemens was making his Yankee Stadium debut after the offseason trade that sent David Wells to the Blue Jays and him to the Yanks. Me, I could care less. It was April and I wanted to see if the Mets could actually play now. The game was played in Montreal and it was tied going into the eleventh, Matt Franco got the hit that won it (something I would see many times in 1999) and the other Franco, John, actually didn't blow the save and got the win, something he couldn't do all of last year. This game gave me a ray of hope that, finally, the Mets had beaten the problems they had encountered last year and had finally become contenders in the National League.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
