Wow. I wish I could say this was an exciting game but it wasnt too exciting, it just meant a lot. It was a battle of the pitchers, and it was all about who was the best. Therfor, nobody really hit much. But I did have a lovely sunny sunday afternoon in park when it was supposed to be raining.

I went to the game with my brother that day. It was Jewish Day that day. The starting lineups were announced in Hebrew. This was one of the best games I've seen Leiter pitch. He went 8 innings of 2-hit ball with 12 strikeouts. He mowed down that Giant lineup one by one.

I went to this game with the New York Giants Historical Society. It was our excursion and we put the picture in the newsletter. A bunch of guys wearing New York Giants orange-and-black.

I was the only one rooting for the Giants. All the older guys shifted allegiances to the Mets when Willie Mays left town.

Al Leiter was tremendous, but I was rooting for the visitors. TO make matters worse, when they welcomed our group on the Instant Replay screen, they put up my name in 80-billion-point type....

....and misspelled it.

That was very upsetting. I've had that done to me all my life...on letters, certificates, even award plaques.

Never forgot that day.

A great game that I went to with my best buddy from high school. Leiter was totally dominate, shutting down Kent and Bonds and the rest of the Giants for 8 innings. The funniest thing was when Leiter told Mad Dog Russo after the game to "Kiss his butt!" Way to stick it to Fatso and Fruit Loops, Al!

Example One
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.
